La FormaciÃ³n de los Economistas en AmÃ©rica Latina
AbstractThis paper presents a comparative view of the training of economists in Latin America, analyzing curricula, commonly utilized textbooks, professors’ time-commitments, teaching methods, and the use of technologies and computational tools. Also, following the approach of Colander (2005), the paper presents the results of a survey of Economics students, creating a socioeconomic profile of them and examining their attitudes and opinions. Among the regularities found for the five countries, it is particularly notable the lack of connection between students’ expectations regarding job market demand for economists and the actual demand by employment sectors.
