Making Business out of Data

Business Analytics and Data Science

Do you want to learn skills to analyze logistics problems? Are you interested in the design and analysis of algorithms? Then the minor Business Analytics & Data Science is just the thing for you. Check here whether you meet the admission requirements and find out how to apply.

This minor is available to bachelor students of Business Analytics from the VU, other Dutch universities and other European universities. 


  • Admission

    In principle, the minor is open to all students from VU Amsterdam, other Dutch universities and other European universities. However, the minor is developed for Business Analytics students from VU Amsterdam and therefore is mathematically oriented with quite some programming. So before applying, please make sure that you have: 1) affinity with mathematics, 2) programming experience (e.g., in Python), and 3) the willingness to learn extra background materials during the minor when needed. Furthermore, when a technical background is missing, it is recommended to choose the courses Data Analytics and Privacy, and Information Retrieval in Period 2.

    The minor is open to exchange and Semester in Amsterdam students.

  • Registration

    Are you an exchange student or Semester in Amsterdam student? The International Office is responsible for course approval and registration. Please contact either the Incoming Exchange Team or Semester in Amsterdam Team for details:
