Welcome to the

Online Summer Prep-Campus for EOR (EDS)


Welcome to the Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) Bachelor’s Programme at the VU University, Amsterdam, and its Specialization in Econometrics and Data Science (EDS)!

Our program relies on Mathematics as a tool for modeling business and economic processes and analyzing data. To help you be well prepared for our program, we suggest to join our online training community and participate in our online math course.

Joining our training community, you will get to know future classmates, and we will help you get fit. The social community on Facebook (see below) is open for everyone, with or without the course. However, an online math course is not free of charge. The fee covers the actual costs of the course (the university does not have a commercial interest).

Do I need a math course?

In order to have get an idea, please check the course content. If you are already fit in the topics, you will probably not need it.

Why an online course?

The great feature of an online course is that it is non-stop open and accessible wherever you are in the world. And you can start immediately. In particular:
  • The math is nicely explained with many examples.
  • There is an unlimited amount of quizzes that give you immediate automatic feedback for self-assessment.
  • There is a forum to ask questions whenever you want. There is always someone to help you.
  • We offer three training tests for optimal preparation for the entry test in September.
  • We offer three webinars for live interaction.

What are the costs and how do I subscribe?

The costs are EUR 69 if you register before June 30th. After that it costs EUR 79.

You can enrol yourself using this link (VU Summer Course EOR 2018). You will be asked to open an account. You will then be in the welcome class with short instructions of how to purchase the course in the shop. It is that easy.
