The BSc Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) in Groningen teaches you all about mathematical modelling. The combination of the four profiles makes this programme unique: econometrics, operations research, actuarial science and mathematical economics. If you like economics, mathematics and statistics, enjoy finding solutions to complex problems and have an interest in mathematical modelling and software-assisted computations, then this could be the programme for you. * Econometrics is about the statistical methods needed to estimate the relation between variables. How does the gas price influence travel behaviour? * Operations research focuses on optimal decision-making and finding approximate solutions to complex real-life problems.
