Do you have a keen interest in the origins and evolution of economic issues? Are you looking to apply mathematical and statistical techniques to help answer real-life economic questions? Would you like to be able to develop and use your own models to define and explain reality systematically? Are you self-motivated and eager to study with international students?
If so, the International Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research, with mathematics, statistics and economics at its core, is the programme for you. It enables you to take on complex issues like:
- How will interest rates and stock prices evolve over the coming years?
- How can waiting times in health care be reduced?
- How can we enhance the effectiveness of online advertising by using Big Data?
- How can public transport planning be improved?
Is this the right choice for you?
Does examining the mathematical aspects of economic problems appeal to you? Are original thoughts your forte? Does the challenge of using your own models to systematically define reality sound interesting to you? Are you ambitious, driven and looking to broaden your horizons by working with students from all over the world? Then this is the programme for you.
The following traits will stand you in good stead to be successful in this programme:
- You like solving mathematical puzzles and riddles
- Economic and business issues fascinate you.
- Studying in English poses no serious problem for you.
- You are interested in working with computers, algorithms and artificial intelligence.
- You are as persistent as you are ambitious.
Why study International Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research in Rotterdam?
Rotterdam is a vibrant, multicultural city that is at the forefront of exciting developments in industry, logistics, science, culture and architecture. It is also the place where modern Econometrics was born at the acclaimed Econometric Institute, cofounded in 1956 by Nobel laureate Jan Tinbergen. With this solid background, the world within reach and every opportunity to kick-off a great career, where else would you want to study but Erasmus School of Economics?
Here you will find:
• A unique combination of theory and practice
• Intensive individual academic support
• Plenty of challenges for excellent students
• An international classroom and cosmopolitan atmosphere
• A vast international business and academic network.
You will meet people from different environments, and before you know it you will feel at home!
Your time at university is not merely about studying, it is about challenging yourself in ways you have never done before.
I noticed how this is used in real life situations and it becomes really motivating that the more you learn, the more ‘doors open’ to understand how the economy works and how it is used in everyday life.
As well as being revolutionary, econometrics affords excellent career prospects, the best out of all non-doctoral programmes in the Netherlands.
