The first year of your studies will be an introduction to the programme and all students enrolling in Economics will start in this first year. It is also possible to study the first year in Dutch, but then it is not possible to choose the track International Economics and Business in the second year. After the first year of Economics, you can choose five tracks to continue your studies in the second and third year. These tracks are:
- Business Economics
- Financial Economics
- International Economics and Business (criteria apply)
- International Economics and Policy
- International Economics and Management
During the third year, you will have the option to study abroad at one of our 180 international partner universities across the globe. If you choose to study the track International Economics and Business, then a semester of studying abroad is an obligatory part of the programme.
