What is AEO?

Actuarial Science

Should a heavy smoker pay more for health insurance than a non-smoker? What about people with genetic diseases – should they pay more? Actuaries estimate complex financial risks regarding financial and economic crises, fire or earthquake damage, population ageing, mortality etc. So, are you good with figures and complex issues? If so, Actuarial Science is definitely the programme for you, and Amsterdam is definitely the city for you!

Econometrics and Operations Research

How many people leave their car at home more often when fuel excise duty increases? What is the effect of interest-rate changes by the central bank on growth and inflation? Those are the issues that econometrists deal with. An operational researcher looks for mathematical solutions for queues in call centres and supermarkets, for example. You capture econometric realities in mathematical models. Do you want to learn how this analysis translates into economic policy? If so, you should study Econometrics and Operational Research (OR) in Amsterdam.
