specialisaties

specialisatie Economics

Economics is one of the four specialisations within Economics and Business Economics. You choose a specialisation for the second and third year of this bachelor's programme.

The specialisation in Economics combines sociology and psychology with economics, aiming to produce professionals who are flexible, adaptable and internationally oriented.

You also look at creative ways to approach real issues as:

  • How does individual consumer behaviour impact the economy?;
  • How do government policies and economic developments affect individual consumer behaviour?;
  • How can governments promote wage equality?;
  • How should the ageing population affect how countries budget?;
  • How does the global financial crisis effect consumer behaviour?

You'll like this specialisation if you:
- are interested in analysing political and social problems in depth;
- see the economic implications of current events;
- want to apply socio-economic theory to political and economic problems;
- like to examine economic problems from many different angles;
- want to understand the role of international organisations in economics.

What you'll actually do:
  • gain insight into the mechanisms behind global markets and the role of the state in the economy;
  • apply knowledge from a cross-section of disciplines;
  • develop strong analytical abilities;
  • analyse economic policy, growth

specialisatie Economics and Management of Information

Economics and Management of Information is one of the 4 specialisations within Economics and Business Economics. You choose a specialisation for the second and third year of this bachelor's programme.

No other bachelor's programme in the Netherlands combines information technology (IT) with business and economics like the Economics and Management of Information specialisation. And nothing could be more timely, given that IT and new media are crucial for doing business in today's global economy.

You'll look at questions like:

  • How can companies use IT to stay ahead of the competition?;
  • How do governments stimulate innovation?;
  • And what effect does all this have on us as individuals?

You'll like this specialisation if you:
  • are fascinated by economics and new technologies;
  • see opportunities in technological change and innovation;
  • are interested in the effect of market regulations on the information society;
  • want to examine the legal, social and ethical aspects of IT.

What you'll actually do:
  • learn how to apply the latest technologies to business and how to predict their economic consequences;
  • address real-life case studies for companies;
  • gain insights into the economic, social and environmental impact of IT;
  • learn to organise information to enhance its value for businesses;
  • gain practical knowledge in economics, business and management as well as IT.

specialisatie International Business Economics

International Business Economics is one of the four specialisations within Economics and Business Economics. You choose a specialisation for the second and third year of this bachelor's programme.

The specialisation International Business Economics gives you a solid foundation in the two key pillars of modern commerce: economics and business.Economics is all about the use of resources in local, national and international markets. Business, meanwhile, brings the focus down to the level of the company.

In this specialisation, you compare economic models with the everyday reality of running a business, to find out what's really going on behind the scenes of the business world.

You'll like this if you:

  • like to experience other cultures and speak foreign languages;
  • have strong analytical qualities;
  • are interested in investigating the underlying causes of economic events;
  • want to get to the bottom of complex business problems.

What you'll actually do:
  • develop knowledge in economics, strategy, finance and accounting;
  • build your skills in quantitative analysis and economic modelling;
  • apply your new knowledge and skills to practical problems in business and economics;
  • learn to communicate confidently and successfully with your peers and the wider world;
  • gain a top business and economic education that employers have confidence in.

specialisatie Emerging Markets

Emerging Markets is one of the four specialisations within Economics and Business Economics. You choose a specialisation for the second and third year of this bachelor's programme.

Most of the world's economic growth is taking place in rising economic powers such as the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and other countries in Asia, Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe. In the specialisation Emerging Markets, you'll use a multi-disciplinary approach to study these emerging economies and the new business opportunities associated with their growth. You'll learn what drives the high growth in these markets, how they are evolving, where the next business opportunities will be, and how to make responsible management and policy decisions in these rapidly changing and sometimes fragile economies.

What you'll actually do:

  • work in small teams on real-world cases, together with students from around the world;
  • develop strong analytical abilities and use them to solve complex business and economics problems in emerging markets;
  • learn how to work with people from other cultures through an internship in an emerging economy;
  • choose the focus of your studies by designing your own curriculum;
  • develop a deep understanding of the way culture and politics shape the business environment in rapidly developing countries.
