Econometricians are frequently hired, for example, as data scientists, quantitative researchers, data modelers, and quantitative analysts. But nowadays, as large data sets are collected nearly everywhere, the knowledge of econometric tools and methods is also becoming an increasingly valuable asset for economists, business executives, engineers, asset managers, consultants, risk managers, and marketing specialists - just to name a few. Students who successfully complete the minor are also invited to consider continuing with the M.Sc. in Econometrics, provided some additional prerequisites are met (see “Related Master’s Programs: Econometrics”).
For current Bachelor Econometrics & OR students (or those from related studies), the minor offers insights into more theoretical, methodological and empirical aspects of econometric modelling in areas such as finance and economics, thereby providing technical as well as practical skills that are complementary to those acquired in the Bachelor programme.
