Bachelor Economics, Behaviour and Policy

Former student Yannick Jorna followed the Master's programme Economics, Behaviour and Policy. 

''The Master’s really focuses on applying a variety of economic methods and schools of thought on real policy issues. The Master’s demands a highly critical attitude towards all the literature you are working with. It is not enough to simply understand what the author chose for in a paper, you have to be able to critically assess the mechanisms, methods and interpretation.

I am employed as an enforcement official at the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets. In my daily job, I am involved with consumer protection in the retail market. In this I am tracking the financial position of energy retailers, assessing the quality of new entrants on the market and performing tariff surveillance.

I am directly involved with consumer issues that directly affect themselves but also decreases the trust in the specific markets. This gives me the opportunity to have a real impact. Next to that, working with the energy market sparked my interest during my Master’s thesis. It is a vibrant market that affects all our lives and will probably increasingly do so in the years to come.

Look for a Master’s that stresses the skills you think are valuable for your future career. Looking into course content thereby mostly gives a way better overview of the things you can expect than course names or naming of programme/specialisation."
