PhD students


PhD students from BDS and partner institutions

BDS PhD students and research master students affiliated to one of the partners of Business Data Science and Tinbergen Institute are encouraged to attend courses from BDS’s Research Master program. They should register for all courses they would like to attend by filling out the registration form (available soon). Fee: 1.000 euro per course, to be charged to the student’s department.

TI partners are: School of Business and Econonomics (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), School of Economics and Business (University of Amsterdam) and Erasmus School of Economics (Erasmus University).

Research Qualification

Many PhD students are directly hired for a specific research project and did not complete a research master program before starting PhD research. A concise set of BDS courses gives these PhD students the opportunity to acquire additional and necessary knowledge and skills. Students who complete the educational program qualify for the BDS Research Qualification. More information can be found on BDS's intranet and in the BDS study guide.

BDS Research Master Graduates

BDS graduates working as PhD students at one of the partners of BDS are most welcome to participate in additional field courses during the later years of their studies. Please register for courses by sending an email courses@businessdatascience.nl. No fees will be charged for PhD students who have transferred from the BDS program.
