VU University Amsterdam

Every year almost 100 high school students choose for Econometrie & Operationele Research at VU university Amsterdam. The VU is situated close to the Zuidas, the region in Amsterdam where many big companies are established. The VU has an own campus for all studies, which makes it easy to meet other fields of study. Firstly the campus is a place to study, but there are many other possibilities at the campus. You could drink a coffee at Doppio, do shoppings at the Spar or take a drink at the Basket. And as a break to the studying you can work on your physical shape by fitness, beachvolleyball or basketball.

In the field of Econometrics and Operations Research at the VU there are three different possibilities to graduate at: Econometrics, Mathematical Economics and Operations Research. The bachelor looks as follows: the first year consists of many basic courses on Economics, Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. In the second year you follow the introductory courses and sequential courses on the three fields named earlier. The first semester of the third year consists of a minor. In the second semester of the third year you follow courses in one of the three fields by your choice and you write your bachelor thesis.

As said before, the VU university is situated in Amsterdam, the best Dutch city for students! It is a lively city, with a tolerant culture. The threehundred years old canals are breathtakingly beautiful. In this city (with more bikes than citizens) there is no need to be bored: there are several market places, shops, museums, music stages, classical concerthalls, cinemas, pubs and clubs. In spring you can visit the Vondel parc, in summer you go the beach or in the winter you can iceskate on the canals.
