Use big data to tackle the big issues
Vast amounts of data are being collected every second. And businesses, governments and societies at large need people who can take these large data sets and summarise, analyse, interpret and present them – often to other stakeholders who are not experts. As a graduate in Econometrics and Data Science, you’re the ideal person for the job.
The majority of graduates from the Bachelor’s programme in Econometrics and Data Science go on to do a Master’s (or a double Master’s) in a related field, or continue with a PhD at the VU.
Whatever you choose to do, you’ll have excellent quantitative and problem-solving, communication and presentation skills. You’ll leave with a large network of like-minded peers, which will put you ahead of the crowd in your career. And the experience you have gained during the programme will make you resilient and ready to take on the world.
