MSC TRACKS 2018
Netspar and Tilburg University offer a Pensions, Aging, and Retirement (Netspar) track as part of four master’s programs:
- Master in Finance;
- Master in Economics;
- Master in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics (EME); and
- Master in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Science (QFAS).
A track consists of two courses specifically designed for each master’s program and one general course. This year we started recording the lectures for the general course, The Economics and Finance of Pensions, allowing us to offer it twice a year. Along with these courses, Netspar offers graduate students a community program consisting of various events and activities, such as the International Pension Workshop, interactive lectures from experts in the pensions and retirement field, company visits, and internships. Participation in certain activities is required for the Netspar certificate.
Of the students from 2018, 4 students graduated with a Netspar certificate on the publication date of this annual report. 41 students have joined the Netspar community and 9 of them officially followed the program.
