Universidad Privada Boliviana is one of the main universities in Bolivia working on and committed to academic excellence. One of our goals is to provide an internationally competitive education educating high-level professionals that can compete successfully in the globalized world and shape entrepreneurs for new businesses. To this end, we are highly committed to conducting high-quality research in different areas of science. In particular, the Centre for Research in Economics was created in 2004 as a core component of UPB’s structure, aiming to continuously produce world-class research within a broad spectrum of the economic sciences. The quantitative analysis of labour markets from both macro and microeconomic lenses is one of the Centre’s most active research lines today.
