Objectives: Does education matter for development? There have been significant improvements in educational attainment across developing countries but it is not evident that such improvements have actually been productive. We will examine why this is so, with a focus on issues of measurement of skills, the incentives for productive investment in skills and the constraints faced by individuals in making productive investments.  The focus is largely microeconomic but we will also stray into examining whether aggregate investment matters too.  We will discuss models of skill accumulation together with empirical evidence that relies on micro-econometric techniques ranging from standard instrumental variables to treatment effects, discontinuity designs and natural and randomised experiments.

How was your LSE experience useful in preparing you for where you are now? Foremost, I remember my Program Director's words on the first day of orientation which said that all LED candidates were capable of their own independent but informed arguments and research perspectives - something very different from the approach experienced back home. A multitude of cultures in one classroom taught me so much about the world and has helped me get leads in my work as well as has contributed towards my communication skills. I feel very confident in interacting with individuals from diverse national backgrounds post my experience at LSE which has contributed to my knowledge about global developments. It introduced me to a bridge between theory and practice and that is a key element today in my research and analytical skills at work.
