Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) offers a challenging honours programme for especially talented and highly motivated students. You will get a deeper and broader coverage of theory and analysis of multidisciplinary issues in the field of economics.


The honours programme is a two-and-a-half-year programme within the Bachelor Economics and Business Economics. You will attend versions of required courses, tailor-made for the honours students and will be challenged to actively experiment, explore and integrate insights from other disciplines. In addition, you will actively shape the programme by organizing and participating in extracurricular activities (e.g. congress, a debate, writing a ‘popular science’ column). You will have access to optional honours courses with students from other disciplines and you will finish the programme with an honours thesis.


Admission and application

The honours programme starts in the second semester of the first year. The application and selection will take place after period 1 (November).
