Lecturer: Dr. Ursula Renold, ETH Zurich, KOF Swiss Economic Institute, Research Division Education Systems

Course description: Finding and retaining talent for companies is becoming increasingly important nowadays. While Switzerland has a comparatively efficient labormarket-oriented education system, other countries find it more challenging to develop the skills needed by the Labor market. We will consider contributions of economics and other social sciences to understanding outcomes of education and training systems.
