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’re curious to find out, we’re curious to meet you.

If you choose the Econometrics and Operations Research track, you’ll get a broad and solid foundation in econometric theory, as well as courses on the application of Econometrics in practice.

Econometrics and Operations Research is highly important within the field of economics and business, as it uses quantitative skills to solve problems and make decisions. How do we predict the next big stock market crash and how should we respond to it? How should a tech company price its latest smartphone so that it is both profitable and competitive? Besides learning skills such as mathematical modelling and programming; you’ll also learn to question decisions 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.
