About Economics and Business, BSc - at Erasmus University College
At the end of their first year at EUC, students declare their Major, which is a central component of the curriculum. It consist of a comprehensive set of courses (75 EC) that builds a solid foundation in a particular discipline. Each Major will be concluded with a capstone project, in which a Major-related topic of the student's choice will be explored under the guidance of a supervisor. In addition to the Major, students have the option to choose an EUC Minor (30 EC). At EUC, you can choose from the following Majors:
The major in Business provides students with a solid base of business and economics theories and their applications. Besides gaining insights into the core business disciplines, such as management and marketing, you also learn about the fascinating scientific fields of business strategy, organisational theory and entrepreneurship. In addition, the Business major introduces you to the logic of economic thinking and data analysis, and therefore prepares you well for a future career in business, or a Master’s degree in business. Students that follow this major are in principle eligible for master programmes offered by RSM, except for the master programmes in Accounting & Financial Management, Supply Chain Management and Business Information Management which require additional courses.
Are you interested in the working of markets or the mechanisms behind economic growth? Or would you like to know more on how consumers and firms make decisions and how these choices affect the economy? And do you have an affinity with mathematics? Then a major or minor in Economics could be the right choice for you.
The major in Economics will give you a thorough understanding of economic theories. In our courses, which were developed in close collaboration with the Erasmus School of Economics, we enable you to further develop your analytical and problem-solving skills. In addition, we provide you with a strong set of tools to identify and analyse problems in and outside the world of economics. This makes students majoring in Economics all-round players: wherever they are, they should feel at home and be ready to think, act and take responsibility based on their economic knowledge and acquired skills. After successfully completing the major, you are in principle eligible for the Master programmes in Economics & Business offered by the Erasmus School of Economics.
Economics, Business and Society
The major in Economics, Business & Society is designed to provide students with a broad background in the field of economics and business administration and its impact upon and interaction with society. The combination of courses encourages students to take an active interest in exploring the broader world and teaches them the tools to explore relevant events empirically. Students graduating with a major in Economics, Business & Society should be attractive candidates for general master programmes in governance, public management and policy-making, business and society, or political economy. Given the broad set-up of the major Economics, Business & Society we currently do not propose a predefined minor. However, we expect in future to include courses from the EBS major in an interdisciplinary minor with courses offered by Social & Behavioral Sciences, Humanities, and/or Life Sciences.
