About Business Data Science at Erasmus School of Economics

Business Data Science

The Business Data Science programme distinguishes itself based on the following unique features:

  • It is a two-year research master (120 EC) aiming to train future PhD students who will start their doctorate at one of the Schools in business and economics of the three partner universities
  • It has a strong focus on data science, presented to the students at a higher theoretical level than in a traditional master programme
  • It ties the foundations of data science directly to different business fields
  • It is a small-scale programme, where students work in close collaboration with faculty. The class-size limit of 30 students guarantees a high level of interaction in the classroom, detailed feedback from faculty, and the support of a strong cohort. Individual field courses will generally have fewer students due to their concentration in the various tracks
  • It is embedded in the fervid research culture of three leading universities, benefitting from the expertise and research network of top-notch faculty. Not only are the rich variety of topics and methodological approaches covered in this programme unique, the broad network employed/drawn on by participating faculty (with connections at MIT, NYU, LBS, and JADS, to name a few) is a valuable asset for future scholars. The cooperation between the three Schools guarantees first-rate education provided by highly qualified scholars, embedded in an excellent infrastructure
  • In addition, the programme helps students to jumpstart their PhD trajectory not only through solid training, but also with direct experience in research (provided during the seminars, research clinic, research hackathons, skill workshops, thesis, interaction with faculty, research assistantships opportunities), and teaching (e.g., teaching assistantships opportunities)
  • Students are provided with excellent facilities. Most of the classes are organized in Amsterdam (Zuidas) with assigned classrooms, student work places and IT facilities for Research Master students. Classes will also be offered at the Woudestein Campus at EUR in Rotterdam with good facilities for students. Students are assisted with immigration procedures and housing. Travel costs for coursework are reimbursed. Scholarships are available for selected students
