Are you interested in financial management, exchange rates and the world economy? If so, then Economics and Business Economics might be the right programme for you. You will learn to analyse the financial choices and decisions that have to be made constantly by businesses, from family businesses to multinationals. You will examine the risks and national and international rules that organisations have to work within as well as how to best deal with uncertainties like fluctuating interest rates and competition. This programme suits people who like to analyse numbers and have a broad interest in the financial system and how this influences organisations.
Economics and Business Economics in Nijmegen is characterized by paying attention to other study fields besides economics as well. We call this Economics+. It means that in Nijmegen you do not only delve into numbers and money, but also into social issues such as income inequality, causes of a crisis, the euro and other currencies, international developments and global capital markets, because in economics, culture, psychology, sociology, and ethics also play a role. Therefore, bits and pieces of psychology, sociology, business administration and law are included in the studies of economics. After all, the way in which resources are used or the way in which markets operate is the effect of human decision-making.
We also invite you to chat with our current student. They are happy to share their experience and answer all the questions you might have about studying and living in Nijmegen.
Notes about fees for this course
The Dutch government has agreed to halve tuition fees for first-year students (Bachelor's programmes only) in higher education. Students taking initial teacher education courses would be eligible for the reduced fee for two years. The plans have been approved by parliament, and so the annual fees will amount to €1,042 in 2019/2020 instead of €2,083.
If you have completed or will complete a study programme outside of the Netherlands, then your previous education will be assessed on an individual basis to determine whether it is of sufficient level. This will be done both by the Admission Office and by the faculty. If the level is sufficient, you could be directly admissible or additional conditions may apply (such as taking an English or Mathematics test). For accepted English tests, please see below. For Mathematics tests: we accept the Mathematics A or B tests from the CCVX and Boswell-Bèta or SAT Mathematics test Level 1 or 2 with a minimum score 600.
