Business Analytics Dual variant
Omschrijving
The dual Master's program combines work and study. During the first 16
months of this program the student is employed part time, and studies
part time. The work has to be relevant for the study and the dual work
period is granted with 12 EC. Often, the external master project is
carried out at the same organization as the dual work period. The
students can only start their internship or Master Project after having
finished the Seminar Business Analytics and having completed all but
possibly one program components.

Admission to the dual Master's program is granted to those who have a
Business Analytics Bachelor's degree. For those with another university
Bachelor's degree, such as Mathematics, Econometrics, Computer Science,
or a Bachelor's degree from an institute of higher education, admission
may be granted on an individual basis. Those seeking admission to the
dual Master's program should realize that admission also depends on
obtaining suitable employment. The VU has contacts with a number of
companies that are interested in participating in this program.

Omschrijving
The emphasis will be on a broad and multidisciplinary education,
preparing the student for a role as an academically trained quantitative
professional in a multidisciplinary organization. Even so, the
possibility to continue after the Master in a PhD program exists also

Business Analytics is a two-year program. The first six months are
devoted to compulsory courses. Over the next twelve months, you will
deepen your knowledge in the three fields of expertise after which you

Combining the knowledge you acquire and applying it to practical
situations plays an essential role in the program. As such, the Master’s
degree is concluded with a six-month individual internship at a company
(the Master’s project). The students can only start their internship or
Master Project after having finished the compulsory Seminar Business
Analytics (6 EC) and having completed all but possibly one program
components.
