Economics and Business Economics testimonial

‘Your 1st year will no doubt be difficult’

Muhammad Muzzammil Hasan (Pakistan) feels that if you want an intellectual challenge and be part of an amazing and diverse student body and live in one of the best cities, the UvA is the best choice. 'And if you’re chubby like me and want to drop a few pounds, this is the right place for you (we bike way too much).’

Paul Stroet (Economics and Business Economics)

‘The Honours programme offers interesting interdisciplinary courses’

Paul Stroet (the Netherlands) feels that economic thinking and decision-making about consumer choices must be more coherent with current psychological findings. 'Fortunately, the Honours programme offers courses that address these interrelations.’
