Career in research

  • Start off with the Research Master’s

    Thinking of a career in academia? The best way to prepare yourself is to follow a research Master's programme before you commence with your PhD. The Research Master's programme in Economics, Finance and Econometrics is offered by the Tinbergen Institute. It offers you access to a doctoral programme at the UvA or another university.

Start by connecting with the industry

The study programme kicks off with inspiring lectures from our partner companies in Royal Theatre Carré. Every business seminar ends with a network session for you to explore your future career possibilities.

  • Career preparation activities

    In addition to the career knowledge and skills you can develop, the Faculty of Economics and Business, study associations and our corporate partners offer many career preparation activities to support you on your personal career journey. For example:

    • career coaching
