Education at UvA Economics and Business (EB) falls under two Schools: The Amsterdam Business School (ABS) and Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE). These schools offer three-year Bachelor’s programmes and one-year Master’s programmes in for example Economics, Business Administration, Finance, Econometrics, and – as the only institution in the Netherlands – Actuarial Science.
Both schools also offer post-doctorate programmes and other forms of education such as custom-made programmes for companies, master classes, professional training courses, and lectures.
