ECN356 - Labour Economics

Credits: 15
Semester: B

Prerequisite: ECN211 and ECN214

This module introduces the economic analysis of the labour market. It presents both traditional topics in the labour economics literature (e.g. demand, supply, human capital, discrimination and compensating wage differentials) as well as recent developments (e.g. early childhood education, migration, non-competitive labour markets and alternative work arrangements). The focus on the module are the fundamental models of labour economics, while basic empirical methods and empirical applications in contemporary labour economics will also be discussed. Students will apply the economic concepts to real world empirical problems.
