Econometrics and Operations Top Programme 2021

The bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research with its tracks Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) and Econometrics and Data Science (EDS) has once again received the "Top Programme" quality mark. The Keuzegids named the programme as the top program in 2021. This makes the bachelor's degree one of the six top programmes at VU Amsterdam.

With this quality mark, the bachelor is one of the best programs in the country. In the ranking of classic universities, VU Amsterdam holds the second place again this year. Eric Beutner, programme director of the programme: "Receiving this recognition for the fourth time in a row is a great acknowledgement of the individual and collective efforts of everyone involved in the programme. It feels good to know that the programme and the quality of its teachers are highly valued."

Ivo Warmerdam, student of the bachelor programme: "One of the reasons this program is received well is that students are generally helpful towards each other, and teachers are often very open minded about improving themselves. The study is not too small, so it doesn't lack professionalism, but it is not too big, so help is easily reachable. Furthermore, the connection between the theory and the practical applications is constantly made, so students don't drown in complicated proofs and formulas."

National Student Survey

Each year, the Keuzegids is partly based on the National Student Survey (NSE). However, no National Student Survey was conducted in 2020 due to the corona crisis. The Keuzegids has therefore used the results from the NSE of 2019. This year the Keuzegids has taken a closer look at the study success of the students and the job guarantee after obtaining the diploma.
