Incorporating courses into your elective space

You can fill your elective space of the bachelor programme with courses from the Erasmus School of Economics, but it is also possible to fill your elective space with courses from outside the school. You can take courses at other Faculties of Erasmus University or at other Universities in the Netherlands or abroad.

You do not need permission of the Examination Board to incorporate Erasmus School of Economics’ courses into your elective space. You do need the permission of the Examination Board to takes courses from outside the school as electives.
