If you choose to study Economics and Business Economics in Utrecht, you choose a broad-based view on economic issues: the real-world perspective. What are the needs and objectives of people and organisations in our complex society? What choices do they make in order to fulfil their needs and achieve their objectives? To find the right answers to these questions we analyse economic issues while using insights of other fields such as Geography, Law, Social Sciences and Applied Data Science.

Your insights will be enriched by the international learning environment. Our students come from more than 20 different countries. Therefore, our programmes cross multiple borders: linguistic, geographical and disciplinary.
