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.

First Level Master

MALED is delivered as a First Level Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development by the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Torino, according to the so-called Bologna Process, which created the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) by making academic degree standards and quality assurance standards more comparable and compatible throughout Europe (for more information, click here). Therefore, the Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development carries 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), equivalent to the workload of the full-time student during one academic year. 

The Master's diploma is awarded upon successful passing of all the exams, thesis submission and after having fulfilled all the conditions required.

IMPORTANT: A First Level Master does not give access to PhD programmes. Admission requirements to PhD programmes vary from country to country, as these depend on the university system of the country where the PhD programme is held. For more information on the minimum requisites required, please directly contact the university offering the PhD programme you are interested in. As a general rule, for instance, a three-year bachelor's degree plus a first level master awarded in Italy are not considered sufficient for doctoral studies at the University of Turin: both a bachelor’s and a second level master are usually required.
