Permission to take courses outside the Erasmus School of Economics
If you would like to take a course outside the ESE, you will need permission of the Examination Board.
In some cases it is possible to incorporate the courses taken outside the ESE into the elective space of your degree programme. Before you can take a course outside ESE, you have to file a request for approval to the Examination Board. This procedure only applies to courses of other Faculties of Erasmus University and of other Dutch universities. There is another procedure for courses taken abroad.
