Description:

What is the most cost-efficient location for placing windmills in the Netherlands? If you enjoy solving a problem like this, Econometrics and Operations Research could be right for you.

 

The Bachelor's Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) in Groningen teaches you all about econometric modelling. The strength of the programme lies in its combination of four profiles: Econometrics, Operations Research, Actuarial Science and Mathematical Economics.

 

Econometrics is about the statistical methods needed to estimate econometric models. Operations research focuses on decision-making and finding optimal or at least good solutions to very complex problems. Actuarial science is about modelling the risks faced by insurance companies, pension funds and the financial sector in general. Mathematical economics studies how markets work and how prices are set. The combination of these four profiles provides an extensive modelling toolkit for solving a wide range of economic and business problems. Many course units in the programme provide the opportunity to practise modelling on the basis of real-life cases and data, thus providing optimal preparation for your future career as an econometrician, operations research specialist, or actuary.

VESTING

VESTING is the association for students of Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial studies.
Her purpose is to tighten the gap between the abstract theory and the practical use regarding Econometrics and Operations Research. Also, VESTING wants to ameliorate the contact between her members and offer them the possibility to deploy themselves on other aspects than their studies. This is achieved by the organisation of formal as well as informal activities.
