About Business Analytics

Bachelor Business Analytics

Business Analytics is a 3-year program at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. The study is a unique combination of mathematics, computer science and economics. The curriculum covers the entire process from data to solution. Right at the start of the bachelor, you get familiar with the practical applications of Business Analytics. Next to the practical side, the students also have a solid theoretical foundation in mathematics and programming.

The last year of the bachelor consists of an elective period called the minor. Students are allowed to choose from multiple courses or choose to go abroad. The bachelor is finalized with the so-called ‘Business Case’, where students solve a problem for a company. These 3 years combined ensure that the students not only have a theoretical background but also learn how to apply this.
