Economics and Business Economics

Compare programme

Why do rates of economic growth vary so widely across Europe? How can a company such as Nike retain market leadership year after year? Should the Dutch government establish a national bank? Economics and Business Economics is an incredibly broad study programme. You will learn to think critically about current, relevant economic issues. At the same time, you will gain insight into how companies are organised and how they operate in their economic context. During the first 18 months, you will familiarise yourself with both areas of study. Afterwards, you will focus on either Economics or Business Economics.
