Education at UvA Economics and Business is organised into two schools: the Amsterdam Business School (ABS) and Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE). They provide the regular three-year Bachelor's and one-year Master's programmes. In addition, the two schools organise postgraduate courses and other educational approaches, including custom-made seminars for companies, master classes, lectures and professional development meetings. Because UvA Economics and Business is internationally oriented, a large number of courses and lectures is taught in English.
All regular Bachelor's programmes are housed in the College of Economics and Business. The College has a Board consisting of a Director (Chair) and the Programme Directors. They are responsible for the content of the undergraduate programmes.
The Master's programmes of the Amsterdam Business School are housed in the Graduate School of Business. The Graduate School of Business has a board consisting of a Director (Chair) and the Programme Directors, and/or study coordinators. They are responsible for the content for the Master's programmes within the Graduate School of Business.

The Education Service Centre (ESC) is responsible for providing support for education and teaching of all regular Economics and Business UvA programmes. Organised in seven teams, the ESC is responsible for the student administration, communications with students, timetables and scheduling courses and exams of EB programmes, and logistical support for lectures and exams. The teams work together to provide reliable and effective services for students and lecturers.
Every member of the scientific staff is a member of one of the two departments of the Faculty. The Department of Economics & Econometrics is part of the Amsterdam School of Economics. The Business Studies Department is part of the Amsterdam Business School.
There are 6 Programme Committees of the Faculty. The Programme Committees contribute to the development of quality education by providing solicited or unsolicited advice on various matters relating to the curriculum, to the Director of the Board, the Directors of Graduate Schools, the Programme Directors, the coordinators of the specialisations and the Dean. The Programme Committees have the right for consent with respect to the adoption or the revision of the education programmes and the Teaching and Examination Regulations.
The Board of Examiners UvA Economics and Business is an independent committee and is responsible for the examinations and degrees of the regular Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam.
Quality Assurance describes the insights, activities and policy in the field of quality assurance in the regular educational programmes as well as in the executive programmes offered by UvA Economics and Business.
The Quality Assurance policy is laid down in the Quality Assurance Manual. The manual reflects all existing policies that relate to Quality Assurance. It is therefore a reference manual and not a policy in itself. UvA Economics and Business revises its Quality Assurance Manual periodically. This manual is updated by the Monitoring and Innovation team of the Education Service Center (ESC) with feedback from the (OR), FSR and Board of Studies (OC) and is formally approved by the dean.
