In short, Econometrics is a combination of Math and Economics. Where Economics stops, Econometrics goes much further. Econometricians use Economic theories and use these to build mathemathical and statistical models and predict certain phenomenons in Economics. Predictions are often made using these models.
An example could be the stock market, it appears unpredictable but its up to the econometrician to make a well founded prediction. Another example is using online click data to predict whether someone is going make a purchase. Nowadays almost every company uses these predictions for its strategy.
There are six universities that offer the course Econometrics in the Netherlands. The Bachelor cannot be found outside the Netherlands. The universities are spread across the following cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Groningen, Tilburg and Maastricht. In these cities they teach the following Master programs Econometrics.
