Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, University of Tilburg
(Training Node)

The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Tilburg offers a wide range of educational programs (BSc, MSc, MPhil and PhD) and conducts research in all major fields of economics and business administration. The Faculty is consistently ranked in the Dutch and European top in terms of quality of education and research. Seeking excellence in research and in their BSc, MSc and PhD programmes remains the prime objective of the Faculty.

The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration has an international orientation, as is demonstrated by the increasing number of non-Dutch faculty and students. Staff and students together form a multicultural and ambitious community. International students follow programmes taught in English: three 4-year programmes (International Business, International Economics & Finance and Business Studies), 16 Masters and 2 PhD Programmes (in Economics and Business). Students are being trained to become managers, advisors, international businessmen, financial experts, IT-specialists or researchers. They acquire the broad academic knowledge base that is required in today's job market.

The graduate programme provides students with a sound basis in economic and econometric theory, a broad background in applied fields, as well as a specialisation in fields of interest. The programme acquaints students with analytic and empirical tools that are frequently used in economic research. Lectures in the Ph.D. program are given by leading Dutch economists, many of whom are members of the Faculty, as well as by scholars invited from abroad.

Tilburg co-operates with a number of national 'networks' that administer Ph.D. education. In addition, Tilburg takes part in the European Network for Training in Economic Research (ENTER), a graduate exchange program for Ph.D. students representing a number of European universities.
