This report contains the documentation of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, as required for the 2005 Assessment of the research quality of the disciplines of ‘Economics and Econometrics’ and ‘Management and Business Administration’. The chosen format agrees with the demands of the 2003-2009 Standard Evaluation Protocol for Public Research Organisations as published by the VSNU.

The documentation presents an overview of the research activities of the faculty in the period 2001-2004.
The Faculty of Economics of the Vrije Universiteit was established in 1948. In 1987 the Faculty merged with the Faculty of Actuarial Science and Econometrics to form the Faculty of Economics, Business Administration and Econometrics. Currently the Faculty is referred to as FEWEB (which stands for the Dutch equivalent of Faculty of Economics and Business Administration).  


FEWEB is a medium-sized faculty, with approximately 3000 students, 1200 postgraduate students and about 400 academic and non-academic members of staff.
