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.

Objectives

This Master's programme is intended to prepare students and professionals from both advanced and developing countries to become experts in designing, analysing and evaluating policies that place employment at the core of economic, social and development policy making. The degree will combine rigorous training in analytical and quantitative economic methods with an emphasis on what constitutes an appropriate policy, legal and institutional framework for employment and decent work in different development contexts.

The training methodology will balance traditional classes on theory, concepts and methods by researchers and lecturers with concrete case studies and practical assignments by practitioners and professionals to support policy applications over pure theory.

Students will strongly benefit from the fact that the courses will be taught by a mix of lecturers, researchers, practitioners and experts from bilateral and international agencies. The programme will build on research findings and tools developed by the ILO and the academic and research institutions associated in the program.

Career opportunities for this Master include work in national administrations in developed and developing countries, international organisations, development agencies, non-profit organisations, consulting and preparation for economics research.

Being the programme very intensive, students must be strongly motivated and fully committed to a successful completion of the master.
