Our programme shares its first-year curriculum with the Economics and Business Engineering programmes. This ensures that students make an informed choice in subsequent years. The first year gives you a thorough basis of general economics and business economics, and in a number of supporting and related fields. From the second year onwards, the emphasis in the Business Economics programme shifts to acquiring academic insight into the functional domains of Accounting, Corporate Finance and Marketing. In addition, the programme boosts your general business knowledge with course units on management, legal issues and entrepreneurship. The curriculum also contains course units on quantitative skills and research skills. You conclude the third year with a Bachelor’s dissertation, in which you research a number of business issues individually.
Our one-year Master’s programme contains three areas of specialization (Accountancy, Corporate Finance, Marketing) and is as of now English-taught. In line with your choice of specialization in the Bachelor’s curriculum, you can tailor your Master’s curriculum further to your own interests and acquire an in-depth knowledge of that domain. In addition, there is room for at least one elective course unit, which you can also replace with a work placement in the business world. The Master’s programme is concluded with a Master’s dissertation, in which you research a specific problem from all dimensions, under the supervision of a professor.
In addition to the (domain) Master’s programme described above, you can also choose a Master’s Programme in Teaching (in Dutch: Educatieve Master). (90 ECTS-credits).
