‘Economie voor jou‘ (‘Economy for You’) is an initiative developed by a group of (business) economists from Tilburg University and Maastricht University. It is designed to increase interest among high school students for Economics and Management & Organization.
The website aims to serve as an interactive platform to help students with the preparation of their final high school exam. It will provide clear video explanations for all final exam questions on the subjects of Economy and Management & Organization in recent years, both for VWO and HAVO study levels.
The explanations will be presented by Dr. Bob van den Brand, one of the most awarded and innovative university lecturers in economics in the Netherlands. Students will be invited to address questions direclty to Dr. Van den Brand, who will then give his answers in real time video format. The service will be available almost every day. (The timetable can be found on the website.)
Dr. Van den Brand’s answers will be recorded and stored in a searchable archive of frequently asked questions.
