Double bachelor BSc² in Econometrics and Economics

What is the content of the Double Bachelor BSc2 programme?

Modified on Wed, 12 Oct 2022 at 10:07 AM

The double bachelor programme enables you to complete two entire three-year bachelor programmes in four years. By taking extra lectures and exams you earn two BSc degrees in two thirds of the original time. You will acquire an average of 66 credits each year instead of the standard 60 credits.

Year one: focus on econometrics

The Double bachelor BSc² in Econometrics and Economics programme covers both theoretical issues related to economics and business, and the application of mathematical and statistical techniques to help answer economic questions. This is unique. You benefit from the excellent perspective that this gives you, compressing the timeline by building knowledge in both subjects.

In your first year, you will focus primarily on Econometrics and Operations Research with various basic courses in mathematics and statistics. This introduction also includes computer programming, implementing mathematical models and solving optimisation problems. The courses Microeconomics and Macroeconomics complete the year.

Years two, three and four: from a solid foundation to a double bachelor

The following three years all consist of both economic and econometric subjects. In the second year of the double bachelor programme, you will lay the groundwork with fundamental courses. Years three and four are about deepening your knowledge and further developing your skills. You will take on your economic major in year three and your econometric major in year four.

In the final year, you have the opportunity to choose a minor (a combination of electives) at or outside Erasmus School of Economics. You can also opt to study abroad, or take an internship. With the completion of a thesis you conclude the double bachelor programme.
