The BSc Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) in Groningen teaches you all about mathematical modelling. The combination of the four profiles makes this programme unique: econometrics, operations research, actuarial science and mathematical economics. If you like economics, mathematics and statistics, enjoy finding solutions to complex problems and have an interest in mathematical modelling and software-assisted computations, then this could be the programme for you.
The combination of these four profiles provides an extensive modelling toolkit for solving a wide range of economic and business problems. Many course units in the programme provide the opportunity to practise modelling on the basis of real-life cases and data, thus providing optimal preparation for your future career as an econometrician, operations research specialist, or actuary.
I chose to pursue my BSc in EOR because of its recognized academic excellence. The programme places a strong emphasis on the practical application of mathematical and statistical techniques to solve real-world problems. Also, the professors are highly approachable and take an interest in students' progress. The courses are focused on practical problem-solving and critical thinking which helps me to develop valuable skills. The degree in Groningen is ideal for students who are looking for a challenging, rewarding, and well-rounded education.
