About

Did the economic crises have an effect on elderly care? How can we increase profits sustainably? How will Brexit affect the European economy? Econometrists help to answer these questions by analysing real data through mathematical and statistical models. In the Econometrics programme of the University of Amsterdam we train you to programme these models and interpret their outcome effectively.

Overview

Help solve economic questions

As an econometrician or data scientist you build models that can explain the problems under investigation and predict changes. With these models you help organisations and businesses deal with questions like:
  • How will housing prices evolve over the coming years?
  • How can traffic jams be reduced?
  • How many people use another means of transport if fuel excise duty is increased?
  • Is it possible to predict whether a customer is likely to purchase an item, based on their website click behaviour?
