The students learn how to extend their existing theoretical and methodological knowledge by working on a small scale research case/project related to actuarial sciences that will form the basis of the bachelor thesis.

In order to write your bachelor thesis in Econometrics & OR, you have to register for this course (EBC2124) or for
EBC2151 in period 5, and for the skills course EBS2044 in period 6.
Various problems from actuarial sciences such as multiple life insurance, multiple decrement models, crude hazard rate, identifiability issues related to competing risk models, Lexis diagram, population models etc. are proposed to the students that will work on a small scale research project (literature overview, empirical or theoretical analysis, model building and solving, ...) under the supervision of a staff member.
