The three-year BSc Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) is a fundamentally quantitative program for ambitious students with an aptitude for mathematics, logic and analytical thinking.

Your ability to apply these models to problems related to issues around, for example, production planning, inventory management, investment, insurance and retirement will be invaluable in organisations worldwide. Economics, statistics and mathematics are the key ingredients of this program and should be your primary academic interests.
