Econometrics and Data Science

Institution Logo Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

In today’s society, massive amounts of data are collected. But how is all that data used? How does KLM price its flight tickets based on supply and demand? How does know why customers book certain hotels and not others? How does Spotify use algorithms to predict what its users want to listen to next? And what are the ethics behind collecting and storing all this data?

If you choose the Econometrics and Data Science track, you’ll combine computer science methods and statistical data analysis, ideal to tackle challenging problems in business, economics and finance.

How do sales on Amazon react to price changes? How high does a dike need to be to prevent flooding due to climate change? You’ll not only learn about things like data structures and algorithms; you’ll also learn to question what to do with data from an ethical perspective.

The Econometrics and Operations Research programme – at both Bachelor’s and Master’s level – has been rated as a “topopleiding” (high-quality education) by the Keuzegids Universiteiten two years in a row.
