Why do some people always want the cheapest product, whereas others will buy a more expensive one? How do you stop a bank from collapsing? Are nuclear plants the solution to the climate problem? 

During the Bachelor of Economics and Business Economics you study the many different facets of economic systems. You gain insight into how people, companies and governments behave, from the choices of individual consumers to decisions on a global scale. Sustainability. The labour market. Competition. Income inequality. Ethics. Entrepreneurship. Risk management. Big data. E-business. Innovation. Consumer behaviour. Investment. Economics is so incredibly diverse!

The Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business Economics is a broad and relatively small-scale study programme. All courses are in English. You benefit from direct and personal contact with your teachers and from interactive lectures. At all times, you are challenged to get the best out of yourself.

You learn to identify the mechanisms underlying various economic phenomena in a country, region, or organisation. You also investigate the steps needed to bring about different economic objectives. With this knowledge, you are well-placed to advise consumers, companies and government agencies in their decision-making processes.
