From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Utrecht University School of Economics (USE) is the Economics department of Utrecht University, in the Netherlands.

The department is divided into three different institutes:

  • the Undergraduate School of Economics, which offers bachelor’s programmes.
  • the Graduate School of Economics, which offers master’s programmes.
  • the Tjalling C. Koopmans Research Institute (TKI), which conducts academic research and supervises research master's programmes (MPhil).

The USE aims to convert itself into a recognised centre of expertise for multidisciplinary economics, dedicated to education and research. It strongly focuses on institutional, historical and spatial dimensions of economic issues as well as the integration and/of collaboration between general economics and business economics[1].

Except for the two international honours colleges of the university (University College and Roosevelt Academy), USE is so far the only UU department that offers an English-taught undergraduate degree programme. If chairs are responsible for teaching and conducting research, students benefit from tutoring and are constantly challenged through empirical papers and essays.

ECU'92[2] is the student organization that represents students, participates in the decision-making of the department and organizes events, often in partnership with the university. Even if ECU'92 is a student organization, it works very professionally. Indeed, political figures or executives usually attend its conferences. Job fairs offer a convenient place for USE students to meet Dutch companies and get a first interview. Finally, ECU'92 publishes The Ecunomist, which name is a nod to the British weekly magazine The Economist.
