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.

In our Master’s programme in Mathematical Sciences, you’ll engage in the core activities of mathematics while discovering new patterns and relationships and learning to construct models with predictive power. You’ll also study the science of structures within the different branches of the physical sciences. Our institute of Mathematical Sciences offers you a versatile, internationalised learning environment at the intersection of fundamental and applied research
You can tailor your programme by selecting one of the following 8 tracks:
You can also choose to do a Research project in History of Mathematics. Choosing a track will allow you to pursue your Master's degree through either a theoretical or more applied focus.
You have the opportunity to combine the Mathematical Sciences Master's programme with other Master's programmes within the Graduate School of Natural Sciences, such as Theoretical Physics. If you have an interest in geometry and plan to do a PhD in this field, you can apply for the selective honours programma of the Utrecht Geometry Centre.
Our Mathematical Sciences MSc degree programme will prepare you for a challenging career in academic research or as a professional mathematician.
