PhD defence: Philip Rosenbaum

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Philip Rosenbaum has submitted his thesis entitled: Essays in Labor Markets. Gender, Fertility and Education.

Monday, April 1, 2019 - 15:00 to 17:00

This Ph.D. thesis is composed of three chapters. It should be noted that while all three chapters are independent research papers and can be read as such, they all address topics within the broad field of Labor Economics. The first chapter analyzes whether long-term labor market outcomes experienced by women who gave birth at an early age reflect previously existing disadvantages or are a consequence of the timing of the childbearing. The second chapter analyzes whether the child penalty in earnings experienced primarily by women is a universal gender entity or due to the partner’s characteristics or gender. The third and last chapter, analyzes the effect of CEO education on environmental decision-making.
