About ASE


Recently, a strategy commission composed of professors Beetsma (chair), Boswijk, Hinloopen, Klaassen, Oosterbeek and Vellekoop, and supported by secretary Ms. Wilma de Kruijf, has brought out a report on the long-term strategy of the Amsterdam School of Economics.


The general ambition of the ASE is to:

  • Educate bachelor students that are competitive on the (inter)national labour market and that are in principle qualified for admission to any related Master program around the world, whereby the top 10% must be able to enter a related Research Master program;
  • Educate master students that are highly competitive on the (inter)national labour market, whereby the top 25% must be able to enter a related top Research Master program;
  • Educate Ph.D.‐students that are well qualified to pursue an academic career, whereby the top 10% must be able to acquire a tenure‐track position at a top university in Europe;
  • Belong to the top‐10 economics departments in Europe based on the ASE’s research performance.

This ambition will be supported by appropriate policies, especially in the area of recruitment and human resource development. The full report can be downloaded below.
