What are the economic consequences of expanding the EU? Why do Dutch firms open up subsidiaries in China? Why is a cheap dollar great when you are planning a holiday in the United States, but quite a problem for an exporting company? What are the effects of technological developments and infrastructure investment on economic growth?

Economics and Business Economics are perfect for students who want to rise to the challenge of seeing beyond the obvious: who want to be international in their outlook and learn to analyse economic and business developments during their studies. Students who will end up holding positions at multinational companies in order to investigate how that company will fare in a given country and students who can explain to national and international organizations how to respond to regional laws and customs.

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Economics and Business Economics is a three year, 180 ECTS credits programme taught entirely in English. Your first year of E&BE will provide you with the fundamentals of Economics and Business Economics. After your first year, you choose one of the two specializations: Economics or International Economics & Business. If you specialize in Economics, you will be trained to become a qualified Economist, with a broad theoretical background and the skills to apply that theory in practice.

If you choose International Economics & Business, you choose a career as an economist with a strongly international profile and a focus on the issues from international economics and business strategy. Both in Economics and in International Economics and Business you will have the opportunity to spend a period of six months abroad, taking economics and business courses (mostly electives of your own choosing) at a foreign university. The Faculty of Economics and Business has excellent international contacts. Cooperation takes place with partner institutions throughout Europe, as well as in countries outside Europe like the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, China and Korea, South Africa and various countries in Latin America.
