The students of Business Administration and Economics of Taxation have given their degree programmes a mark of 7.0. This puts both degree programmes in first place, of five universities.
For its annual research into ‘The Best Degree Programmes’, Elsevier magazine questioned current students at Dutch universities on matters related to teaching, facilities, lecturers, exams, and communication.  Other FEB programmes that were reviewed by students are economics, taking fourth place (of 9) with a total score of 7.0, and econometrics taking third place (of 6) with a score of 7.1.

In the business administration review, the positive items that really stand out are availability of lecturers, writing skills and facilities, such as computers and practicals. Students of Economics of Taxation especially appreciate their lecturers, the system of examinations and also the facilities.
