Each year the Dutch magazine Elsevier publishes the results of surveys amongst students concerning the perceived quality of academic studies. Unfortunately, the original survey data are not publicly available. We therefore repeat the survey for economics students in Maastricht and Rotterdam, as we wish to examine which attributes explain the overall evaluation and whether students in the two cities have different response styles. We find that the students in Rotterdam value the curriculum, while the Maastricht students value education, examination and organization of the school. We also find that a typical student in Maastricht is inclined to give a more positive evaluation than a similar student in Rotterdam. We discuss various implications of our findings
