Econometricians combine mathematics and statistics with economics to support business and economic decision making. They excel in the complex world of global logistic chains and international finance.
The field of Econometrics and Operations Research develops and applies mathematical and statistical techniques to answer economic questions. An econometrician tries to describe economic processes with a quantitative model. The programme of the International Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research consists of courses in mathematics, statistics and economics. In these courses you obtain the skills to understand economic processes, to turn them into quantitative models, and to use mathematics and statistics to find the answers you are looking for.
With the International Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research you learn to build models for economic decision making and processes. Logistic firms use econometric models to optimise supply chains, banks for investments and to predict financial markets, and the government to make policy decisions and predict economic growth.
Enjoy integrating the discipline of maths with the economic reality of consumers, firms and government? Then econometrics is the field for you. In Rotterdam, we have over 50 years experience applying and developing econometric techniques. Our school is a pioneer in the field with Nobel-laureate Jan Tinbergen. As of 2012, we will offer a new international bachelor along the lines of our successful Dutch bachelor.
