The Master of Science in Econometrics is a multidisciplinary one-year programme that provides a balanced and rigorous training in quantitative analysis of problems in economics and finance. The programme consists of advanced courses in both mathematical economics and econometrics.
Mathematical economics deals with mathematical modelling of such market phenomena as price adjustment processes. Econometrics deals with statistical modelling, estimation and testing of economic models using economic and financial time series data.
Upon completion of the Master‘s programme, students will have obtained a sufficient level of academic vigour to read major academic journals in Economics. They will also be able to apply advanced mathematical and statistical methods, supported by modern software packages such as E-Views and OX, to the exploration and analysis of problems in economics and finance Studying Econometrics at the University of Amsterdam
The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) specialises in providing students with the broad range of skills, in-depth knowledge and international expertise that they will need in the business world and public sector alike. Many of the lecturers in the Master of Econometrics are researchers at the Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE), one of the ten research programmes of which is dedicated to Econometrics. Approximately 30 students currently participate in the ASE's English-taught international PhD programme. A number of internal and external economics-related research institutes are affiliated with the ASE, enriching research and career opportunities for students in the Master's programme.
Applicants are expected to hold a Bachelor‘s or Master‘s degree in Econometrics, or to have taken econometrics as a major subject.
