BSc programme in Econometrics and Operations Research labeled top programme by Keuzegids Universiteiten

The Bachelor's programme in Econometrics and Operations Research was listed a top programme by Keuzegids for 2020. Herewith it is one of the six top BSc programmes at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.


This rating contributes to the upward trend of VU in this particular ranking as it is listed second place of all universities this year.

The excellent score of the programme was due to a number of factors. Students are positive about most of its components, but the programme itself, and its assessment and feasibility stand out in particular. The program is assessed as above-average by almost all students. This positive assessment was echoed by the experts as well.

Nouri Mabrouk, student EOR: "I fully agree with my fellow students that our study program is a top program. The combination of theory and partnerships with companies and social partners make this study unique. While the number of students increased the quality of the program remained constant. That is a big compliment to all teachers and employees who have contributed. "
