"Studiebureau" seems to be a word in use in Belgium rather than the Netherlands. The above translation is given in the Servotte Business Dictionary, which has its roots in Belgium

'Design studio' -as proposed in the previous answer- is incorrect, especially when you look at the given context (economics,...).
A 'studiebureau' is indeed quite often used in Belgium and describes a company where 'studies are made' (how original;-)). This can be anything, but usually refers to engineering. Hence the fact that you may sometimes translate it as 'design studio'.
Anyhow, here you should translate 'studiebureau' by 'consultancy office' where advice is given and studies/projects are made concerning economics, marketing, software development & implementation, etc
