Assignment for Networks in Business and Economics

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

The final assignment should demonstrate that the student has achieved
the intended learning outcomes for this minor. The student will thus
demonstrate that (s)he can recognize, understand and analyze societal
and business problems in which networks are central, or play an
important role, selecting and using appropriate techniques from
economics, business sciences, operations research, and/or (mathematical)
network theory. The student can communicate and advise on these matters
at an academic level.

Inhoud vak

In the final period, students work on a large (6 ect) assignment.
Students can choose between two types of assignment. One is to write a
short research paper, which is typically done by students individually.
The other is to do a case, which is typically (depending on the nature
of the case) done in groups of three students. The course offers two
get-togethers. In the first week, presentations are given on the problem
statement and the work plan (including methodological choices). At the
end of the third week, final presentations are given. Students from
cases and research papers are mixed for both meetings. And for both
meetings, students act as presenters and as discussants for colleagues.

A list of topics (indicating whether it is a paper or a case assignment)
and accompanying teachers will be available well before the start of the
period. Paper topics can be both theoretically and empirically oriented,
and ideally give students ideas for their bachelor’s theses. Cases will
be based on real-life problem situations spread over the various
disciplines, but in which at least two disciplines are coming together.
The emphasis in the cases is on modelling


Students will have a supervisor for their topic. Moreover, there will be
two meetings. In the end of the first week, students will present and
discuss problem statements and working plans. At the end of the third
week, students will give a final presentation. At both meetings,
students will also act as discussant for colleagues.


Paper grading, presentation grading, discussion grading.
Students doing a case in a group will have an individual oral exam on
their case report after it has been presented.
