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 who are competitive on the (inter)national labour market and who are in principle qualified for admission to any related Master's programme around the world, with the top 10% being able to enter a related Research Master's programme;
  • Educate master students who are highly competitive on the (inter)national labour market, with the top 25% being able to enter a related top Research Master's programme;
  • Educate Ph.D. students who are well qualified to pursue an academic career, with the top 10% being 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. Download the full report below.
