Master's Programme in Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics

Dear colleagues, 

The Master of Science in Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics (“STREEM”) is a one-year master’s programme offered at the Department of Spatial Economics, VU University Amsterdam, which is one of the main players world-wide in these three fields of specialization. This master will be of interest to students with a background not only in economics, but also in geography, transport science and related disciplines. The programme starts in September each year and is completely taught in English. More detailed information is provided at the website.

We would very much appreciate if you could bring this Master under the attention of students who may be interested. We would also like to mention the possibilities for scholarships. Our Faculty of Economics and Business Administration recently established its own Piet Rietveld Scholarship. Also the VU Fellowship Programme (VUFP) offers talented prospective students opportunities for a grant. In addition, there are scholarship opportunities outside VU University.

The application deadline for the next academic year is 1 April, 2015 (and 1 March, 2015, if applying for a scholarship). The admission and application procedure can be found here .

In addition to the master’s programme STREEM, we offer a summer school (3 ects) on Metropolitan Economics from 6-17 July, 2015. This might be of interest to the same group of students. It addresses economic mechanisms behind urbanization, urban policy challenges, as well as policy instruments to address these. More information can be found on the website.

We look forward to welcoming new students at our department!

Thank you very much and kind regards,

Jos van Ommeren
