The Turin School of Development
At the International Labour Conference in Geneva (venue: Palais des Nations, Room X), the ITC-ILO will present the Turin School of Development (Master’s and other postgraduate programmes run by a network of United Nations organizations in conjunction with universities) on 7 June 2011.
Since 1991, the Turin Centre has offered postgraduate learning opportunities in disciplines of global significance to an international audience of recent graduates and career professionals. In partnership with UN agencies and academic institutions, its Master’s and other postgraduate programmes have expanded to cover applied labour economics for development, international trade law, management of development, intellectual property, public procurement management for sustainable development, world heritage at work, and occupational health and safety in the workplace.
These truly international programmes are each co-managed by an international organization and the modules are taught by a faculty of professors, senior experts and practitioners from around the globe.
The portfolio of Master’s and other postgraduate programmes was developed with great care over the last two decades and has now been consolidated as the “Turin School of Development”.
The Turin School of Development enables the Turin Centre to play an important role in preparing future experts and leaders for the development, economic and social challenges of the 21st century.
