Certainly, MALED for me was of main importance for my professional and personal development. The courses where enriching and interesting, the professors where experts on each subject, which made classes appealing, my classmates were from all around the world bringing diversity and different points of view to each topic, and the people involved in the program were warm and helpful at all times.

I decided to apply for MALED because the program seemed interesting and complete. It was supposed to cover a lot of subjects that are trending topics nowadays in development economics and with a lot of specifics in labor economics which was my field of work at the moment.
When I decided to submit my application for the Master of Science in Applied Labour Economics for Development, I expected to live another long year of studying. Surprisingly, this was not what I found. The exciting international environment, high quality of teaching and kindness and availability of all staff members contributed to make this a unique experience.
My MALED experience was wonderful because it allowed me to literally learn about a whole set of issues that I was not so aware of as well as deepen my knowledge of quantitative methods compared to what I had previously learned during my undergraduate studies in Economics.
I was accepted in the PhD in Economics at the University of Turin.

I'm happy I'll be able to continue my studies because we've just set up a group in the central office of Labour Inspection Secretariat, comprised of inspectors with some knowledge in statistics and econometrics in order to study and improve the Brazilian labour inspection service.

An excellent course for both those who have or do not have previous exposure to Labour Economics. It provides both theoretical and practical knowledge, through a panel of veteran economists, statisticians & social researchers from reputed Universities, international organizations (ILO, World Bank) and research institutions.
The Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development has been an invaluable experience. Besides the best facilities available at ITC-ILO campus and the impeccable organization of the Master, I learned a lot from prominent lecturers who armed me with strong and up to date theories and practices in the field of labour Economics.
I passed the professional contest of the National School of Administration in order to become inspector of taxes and lands.
As soon as I started MALED, I came in contact with some interns at the ILO HQ to know if it would be possible to do an internship.
