The study programme in a nutshell
The Research Master is a two-year full-time programme in the philosophy of economics. The first of its kind, the programme remains one of the few programmes in the world that focuses especially on philosophy of economics, and that offers a comprehensive overview of the field. The Keuzegids rated this programme as one of the best research master programmes in philosophy and among the Top-22 of all master programmes in the Netherlands.

Many of the students that have come through our Research Master are now academics who lead the field, after securing places on the most prestigious PhD programmes in the Netherlands (e.g. Erasmus University), the United Kingdom (e.g. Cambridge), and North America (e.g. Toronto). Other students go on to excel in the private or public sector (e.g. the European Central Bank).
