Econometrie en Operationele Research

Programma

  • 1e jaar

    The first year starts with an intensive entry programme, in which you take your first course units, meet your fellow students and obtain important study information. You will take course units in mathematics, probability theory, statistics, modelling, programming, microeconomics and finance. These course units lay the foundation for the rest of the programme.

    The most important skill that you will learn is how to use appropriate models to answer complex economic questions. This involves the following steps: start with an economic question or problem; carefully determine the relevant variables and parameters; construct a model that involves these variables and parameters and can answer the question; estimate the model with real-life data by applying appropriate techniques from statistics and mathematics; solve the problem using the estimated model.

    In the first part of the third year it is possible to take a Minor. You can choose one from a different degree programme or faculty, at the university either in the Netherlands or abroad. In the second semester of the third year you will write your Bachelor's thesis to prove your modelling skills.

Studeren in het buitenland

  • Studeren in het buitenland is facultatief
  • Maximaal 30 EC

(Bindend) studieadvies

  • Minimaal 45 EC in de eerste 12 maanden (bindend)

You will be offered study advice after the first year of study. You can expect a positive result if you have earned more than 45 ECTS credit points (out of a total of 60 ECTS). If you have earned fewer than 45 ECTS and are issued a negative result, you will not be allowed to continue with your degree programme.

You will receive preliminary study advice in December to make sure that you know where you stand. Please contact your study advisor as soon as possible if you have any questions about the BSA system.

N.B. Some degree programmes use a tutoring system; please check with your study advisor.

Waarom in Groningen?

EOR is an internationally accredited programme, ensuring a high quality education that meets both the AACSB and EQUIS standards, which only 1% of universities reach worldwide. You acquire a sound footing in economics, mathematics and statistics; become familiar with the range of important models and how they can be put to best use; develop an aptitude for research; become skilled in communicating mathematical and quantitative results. With this, you can address a wide range of societal issues.

Studying means working independently and planning your studies yourself, but of course, the faculty will help you do so. Together with other first-years, you will participate in a mentor group. The mentor, a senior student, will help you quickly learn the ins and outs of the faculty. In addition, you will discuss your study progress with your tutor (a lecturer-supervisor) at regular intervals. The study advisors are available to help you with specific study problems.

Right from the start of the first year, the mentor group, called Study Performance and Academic Attitudes (SPAA) group, will meet on a regular basis, supervised by the student-mentor. Assignments and discussions will help you gain insight into your own way of studying and how to develop effective study skills. You will follow most tutorials with the same group. This small-scale approach enhances contact between students and between students and lecturers. You will also have a lecturer-tutor, whom you will meet individually at the start of your studies and after the first two exam periods. This way you receive personal and regular feedback on your study progress. Successful studying depends on many different factors, so it is understandable that you may need to consult an impartial expert to discuss your study progress and personal circumstances that influence your studies. The faculty's study advisors are available to help you. Obviously, everything discussed with the study advisor remains confidential.

  • Testimonial van Wieke Boonstra

    Building models from data sets to make predictions

    'I knew Econometrics and Operations Research was the right study programme from day one. It challenged me immediately. The way you deal with economics and mathematics is different from high school. You have to work hard to keep up. If you do so, it is a very interesting programme. In the course Operations Research we worked on cases regarding the transportation sector. We built models from data sets to make predictions for the future. It involved a lot of programming, which I found interesting.'

    'Good way to develop your logical thinking abilities'

    'After deciding I wanted to study in the Netherlands I looked at several universities that offer econometrics. Groningen appealed to me because the university is a very central aspect of city life. I'm happy with my decision to study here. I've enjoyed the classes so far. My favourite is mathematics. It's really challenging and a good way to develop your logical thinking ability. And I'm glad I have classes in economics too. Econometrics and Operations Research combines the best of both worlds.'

    "At work we use models that I learned about in Groningen"

    'Finding a job was quite easy, I got one before I even graduated. As a student I worked part-time at MIcompany, a specialised commercial analytics agency which combines econometrics and marketing. After a while they offered me a fulltime contract. It's interesting to think about what people need and how that translates into customer behavior. Then I can create a win-win situation for our client. At work we use models that I learned about in Groningen, so my degree actually comes in handy.'
