Erasmus School of Economics has done a good job at combining two bachelor programmes: Econometrics and Economics. A fulfilling mixture of both quantitative and economic courses. In this double degree bachelor programme you get a challenging and diverse course load, with subjects ranging from theoretical mathematics to behavioural economics or philosophy. It is this diversity that I enjoy most about the programme as I have always had a broad set of interests.

The study load is of course a bit higher than for a normal bachelor programme, but in the end it is well worth it. The students are extra ambitious and create a stimulating environment, making you want to improve beyond what you thought possible before. The double bachelor shines light on how to combine a variety of analytical skills from the econometrics programme with the soft skills from the economics programme.

Being able to live in the city of Rotterdam is definitely a bonus. Its vibrant city centre, combined with beautiful parks and an interesting cultural atmosphere makes living here very enjoyable.

Naturally, there is more to student life than studying. Both Rotterdam and Erasmus School of Economics offer numerous opportunities to make the most of your time here. Whether you are big into sports or want to improve the student experience for your fellow students, you will definitely find your spot here!
