About

The Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics MSc programme offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam deals with urban and regional, transport, environmental, or real estate economics.

Overview

The Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics MSc programme offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam allows you to specialize in one of these four fields, but also offers the opportunity to combine courses from all these fields. The programme offers you the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to tackle complex problems at a high level of abstraction, keeping in mind the need to translate theoretical solutions into clear-cut policy advice. The contents are firmly rooted in economics, but shed light on the multi-disciplinary nature of many real-world policy questions.

Most graduates find jobs within 3 months as policy economists with (inter)national government agencies or consultancy firms, or at organizations such as airlines or railway operators – and are better paid than graduates from other economic programmes. Some opt for a career in economic research.
