Econometrics is paramount for decision-making in business and economics today. Do you already have a strong background in mathematics, statistics and econometrics and would you like to take it further? With the Econometrics programme, you can.
Financial firms, statistical offices and international governmental organisations successfully apply econometric models and methods on a daily basis. No matter where your ambitions lie, this Master specialisation in Econometrics will give you the edge. The programme will not only provide you with in-depth knowledge of econometric theory, but will also train your skills to use advanced quantitative methods and techniques, perform empirical econometric analysis and develop and apply new models.
If you want to extend your econometric knowledge beyond linear regression, instrument variable regression, limited dependent variables models and time series analysis, Erasmus School of Economics is where you want to be. Together with the Econometric Institute, we offer a high-quality advanced curriculum that combines advanced theory with extensive case-based training.
The quantitative skills you acquire in this programme are your ticket to a great starting position on the job market. Records show that later in their careers, many of our graduates become board members at leading industrial firms and banks or highly-positioned civil servants. With the right attitude and rigour, you too can have a prosperous career anywhere you want. Possible employers include:
Do you share our Econometrics students’ broad interest in economics? Do you have a demonstrable quantitative background and plenty of curiosity, ambition and determination? Then you should definitely meet some of our students here.

Do you want your work to involve revenue management, transport planning and scheduling in railways, shipping lines and airlines or supply chain design? Or would you rather excel in science? Do you have sound academic training in econometrics, mathematics, physics, industrial, mechanical or systems engineering? Then you should seriously consider the Operations Research and Quantitative Logistics programme.
Operations Research is a broadly applicable discipline in which advanced quantitative methods are used to help make better decisions. Quantitative Logistics studies the application of quantitative techniques to design, plan and control logistics systems. This programme trains you in both fields, while addressing real-world problems.
This specialisation focuses on areas in transport and logistics requiring strong quantitative skills. It differs from other standard logistics or supply chain management programmes in the sense that you also learn all about the methodology underlying advanced decision support systems. Giving you the edge.
With this specialisation, you can easily secure employment in sectors that are in increasing need of quantitative skills, like logistics / transport, healthcare and utilities. Records show that the analytical skills acquired in this programme will give you distinctive hiring and starting salary advantages over many other graduate programmes. Today’s need for data-driven management is fulfilled by our graduates. Examples of companies include:
Do you share our students’ sound academic training in a quantitative domain? Does the transport/logistics sector appeal to you, too? Are you ambitious and analytical just like they are? They will gladly share their thoughts on the programme with you.

This research oriented Master’s will provide you with a rich toolkit of creative problem solving skills that will turn you into a desired scientist, both in and outside academia. You will dive deep into mathematics, develope genuine research skills in pure, applied and industrial areas and learn to think out of the box.
This Master's is part of the national Mastermath Programme, a collaboration of Dutch Mathematics Departments who joined efforts to enhance their Master's programmes. Due to this collaboration you can benefit from an exceptional list of mathematical courses, offered either by Utrecht University or another Dutch University. Check the courses page for more information and a full overview of the courses you can choose from.
We combine our course offerings with personal and small-scale teaching, including:
Within this Master's you can choose from 8 different tracks, allowing you to tailor the programme to your own personal interest. Depending on the track you choose, you can pursue your degree either in the direction of Fundamental Mathematics or in Mathematical Modeling.
Fundamental Mathematics tracks:
Mathematical Modeling tracks:
You can also choose to do a Research project in History of Mathematics.
If you are up for it, you can also combine the Mathematical Sciences programme with another Master's programmes of the Graduate School of Natural Sciences (e.g. Theoretical Physics, Climate Physics or Computing Science). This will result in a double Master's degree.
The Mathematical Sciences programme will prepare you for a challenging career, either in or outside academia. Mathematicians are desired employees in today's job market since they can easily deal with complex problems and large data sets in an abstract way. About 40% of our students continue with a PhD in mathematics or related research areas such as imaging or physics (in recent years at Harvard, London, Oxford, Stanford, etc). Many find employment in a research oriented environment at governments or in industry. Work fields include risk analysis, security, forensics, consultancy, data analytics, IT, logistics and more.
