Candidates should have a strong interest in quantitative research (applied econometrics) and preferably hold a Master’s degree in Business Engineering (Handelsingenieur) or (Business) Economics. Graduation with honors in preliminary studies is a requirement for entry into the PhD program, as well as an appropriate command of written and spoken English (TOEFL: a minimum score of 575 paper-based, 233 computer-based, 90 internet-based, or IELTS: a minimum score of 7). Experience with data handling and programming/scripting (Stata, R, Python…) is an asset.  Students who are currently in the final year of their Masters are especially encouraged to apply. Having a Research Master degree is considered a plus.

All applicants should check the admission requirements for the doctoral program in Business Economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business here and supply all necessary information (proof of proficiency in English, GRE/GMAT, letter of motivation, transcripts of degrees) with their application. Candidates are encouraged to include a piece of their own research, e.g. an assignment paper or (part of) your Master’s thesis.
