The Bachelor's programme ‘Economics and Business Economics’ is a real-world oriented three-year bachelor programme that prepares you for a career as economist in various organisations. Whereas the first half of the programme equips you with a solid understanding of economic principles and related skills, the second half of the programme gives you the freedom to tailor the bachelor’s programme to your interests. It offers you a broad range of courses, which enables you to specialize in several areas of economics.
To help you select courses that best prepare you for the direction you want to pursue as an economist, we have developed four so called ‘study routes’. Two are in Economics (Economics and Public Economics) and two are in Business Economics (Finance and Management). These routes are made to help you understand which courses naturally fit together. You are not required to follow all courses within one route, so you are still able to combine courses from different study routes.
When planning your future study you can use the Courseplanner to select the courses mentioned in the Study Route tool to see how you can combine the courses of your choice. Please note: always consult the course catalogue to see the prerequisites of the courses of your choice.
