Education and Training

 

Affiliate Researchers : Giuseppe Bertola, Arnaud Chéron, Pierre Courtioux, Stéphane Gregoir

This branch of the EDHEC Economics Research Centre covers three main themes:

Microsimulation study of higher education returns
▪ Assessment of private returns from higher education; Analyses of fiscal contributions; The impact of social background on access to educational returns; The link between continuous learning and returns from initial education.

▪ Assessment of the merits of funding higher education using forgivable loans (tripartite higher education contracts between the state, the institution and the student) which guarantee “free access”, but recall the amount of public investment granted and the terms of future contributions (dependent on current income).
    
→ Synthetic presentation of the original statistical tool developed by EDHEC (GAMEO): a dynamic microsimulation model for higher education. This tool models a higher education degree and produces a detailed breakdown of the outcomes this has for the following: salary, unemployment risk, life expectancy, age at marriage, educational homogamy, social security contributions and benefits.

Lifelong training: Analysis of the dynamic of human capital based on professional career paths and the link between wages and employment; A study of the social externalities brought on by the process of accumulating skills, particularly through continuous professional development; What role and form do policies that support continuous professional development have?; An analysis of the interactions between employment policies and those that support continuous professional development.

Educational success based on the type of institution attended (public or private): An international analysis of students’ performances (PISA scores); The role of the educational institution based on students’ abilities.
