Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development

This master responds to the need for more diverse expertise in the design and evaluation of policies in which international labour standards and fundamental rights at work go hand-in-hand with job creation and productive employment. It is intended to prepare participants to become experts in designing, analysing and evaluating policies that place employment at the heart of economic, social and development policy-making. The course will combine rigorous training in analytical and quantitative economic methods with an emphasis on what constitutes an appropriate policy, the legal and institutional framework for employment and decent work in different development contexts.

How do you reach the ITC-ILO Campus?

BY PLANE

Turin International Airport is 45-minute drive from the Campus. From the airport, the simplest thing is to take a taxi to our Centre. Ask the driver to take you to the "Centro BIT - Campus ONU". On a weekday, the cost should be no more than 40 euros.

Milano Malpensa International Airport is located 50 km from Milan. From this airport, you can reach Turin either by bus or by train (a taxi to Turin will cost approx. €250). Information is available on the SEA Aeroporti Milano website (Malpensa Airport - Connection – From Malpensa – By bus)

BY TRAIN

Train information

There are two major railways stations in Turin: Porta Nuova, which is closer to our Centre, and Porta Susa. On a weekday, the taxi fare to the Campus should be no more than 15 euros from Porta Nuova and 20 euros from Porta Susa.

BY CAR

Our Centre is situated in the South-East of Turin. If you arrive from the North, follow the "Tangenziale Sud" ring road towards Savona/Piacenza and exit at Moncalieri. If you arrive from the South, on the motorway, follow signs to Moncalieri, and exit there. Then follow signs to "Torino Centro" (Turin city centre) and "Corso Unità d'Italia". After about two kilometres, a big overhead sign saying "Torino" welcomes you to Turin. Stay on that road for another 500 metres: our Centre will be on your right. It is fairly easy to download a route map from the Internet.
