The Top Bachelor's Programme in Econometrics and Operations Research in Groningen teaches you all about econometric modelling. The strength of the programme lies in its combination of four fields: Econometrics, Operations Research, Actuarial Studies and Mathematical Economics. Important features of the programme are small-group teaching, personal contact with lecturers and the combination of theory and empirical applications.

Econometrics is about the statistical methods needed to estimate econometric models. Operations research focuses on optimal decision-making and finding approximate solutions to very complex problems. Actuarial studies is about modelling the risks faced by insurance companies and pension funds. Mathematical economics studies how markets work and how prices are set. The combination of these four fields provides an extensive modelling toolkit for solving a wide range of economic problems. Many course units in our programme provide the opportunity to practise econometric modelling on the basis of real-life data, thus providing optional preparation for your future career as an econometrician.

opbouwCheck for more info on all courses: http://www.rug.nl/ocasys/feb/vak/showpos?opleiding=4655
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.

2e jaar 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.

You will be offered study advice after 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.

study guidance
As a student, you are expected to work independently, 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 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.
During the first year, your mentor group, called Study Performance and Academic Attitudes (SPAA) group, will meet on a regular basis, supervised by your student-mentor. Assignments and discussions will help you gain insight into your own way of studying and how to develop effective study skills. 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 with whom you can discuss your study progress and personal circumstances. The faculty's study advisors are available to help you. Obviously, everything discussed with the study advisor remains confidential.

Jing Chen
'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.'
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.'
Tryntsje Hoving-Wesselius
afgestudeerd in 2009 werkzaam als Marketing Intelligence Analist bij MIcompany
"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.'

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Graduates with an MSc degree are found in a broad spectrum of occupations where IT, mathematical and problem-solving skills are needed. The world of business offers jobs in finance, insurance, logistics, manufacturing and marketing. Non-profit organisations, such as employers' federations and consumer organisations also hire econometricians. Governments need the diverse skills that will make up your toolkit. Finally, moving into academia is another possible career path.

Your job prospects will be good. Nonetheless, while a Bachelor's degree may meet the requirements for entry-level positions, almost all students decide to continue with a Master's degree. Acquiring a Master's degree will expand your career opportunities in the short and long term, at home and abroad. Because all our programmes are EQUIS and AACSB accredited, a standard which only one percent of universities reach worldwide, your degree will be highly valued on the labour market.
