  • daniel horcher"The year I spent at VU Amsterdam completely changed the way how I approach transport-related problems and their interrelations with spatial economic and environmental phenomena. I strongly recommend STREEM for those who wish to complement earlier studies with deeper understanding in the economics of transportation and other network industries."

  • Sadaf Dostzada"This master was a challenge, and in one year master I developed my scientific skills more than I expected. The teaching staff contributed to my self-development and knowledge gain, and was very engaged with the students. Because of the small classes there was always space for discussion about interesting subjects. This made us think outside the box. Also were we frequently informed about work or internship opportunities."

  • Jochem Brons"The STREEM Master was a valuable and fundamental opportunity for my personal growth and scientific development. It allowed me to improve and deepen both theoretical and empirical knowledge by attending the lectures and by working under the supervision of international worldclass professors and researchers."

  • "This master allowed me to grow as an economist; the program's approach of theoretical and practical courses provides a strong analytical and deep understanding of the spatial, transport and environmental economic interactions. Being able to participate in a highly academic environment and becoming a more versatile economist is why I recommend STREEM."
