Courses (ESOL)

Economic Sociology, Organization and Labour Studies



The ESOL training programme is characterized by a highly interdisciplinary approach, in which economic sociology is integrated with the study of labour law, statistics and computational methods, and topics in economics, organizations, business, and behavioural sciences. 

In addition to the theoretical and substantive knowledge on the topics relevant to the Programme, this training aims to provide strong methodological and empirical research skills, both quantitative and qualitative, including the most recent advances in the social and economic sciences. 

Ph.D. students must attend the following courses for the A.Y. 2023-2024:
