Bachelor in Economics



The Bachelor degree in Economics provides advanced training to anyone interested in understanding how the economy works from the workings of specific markets (like labour markets or financial markets) to the role of the State, and the integration of our economies into the global economic and financial system.

The programme is highly multidisciplinary. On top of a rich variety of economics courses, it provides strong foundations in quantitative skills to support the development of students’ modelling skills as well as strong foundations in other human and social sciences to ensure their analyses are properly grounded and contextualised. Emphasis is increasingly placed on applications over the course of the programme, with individuals, firms, markets or the entire economy as central subjects of study.

Language proficiency is strongly encouraged, with courses in Dutch and English throughout the curriculum.

The programme takes part to the Sustainable Development initiative [add a link when available]. It exposes students to sustainable development challenges and their solutions, through the lenses of different courses within thematic pathways integrated into the programme.
