Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives

Dates:

The Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives program began in 2010, and quickly became very popular. In response to participant interest in additional content on the economic policies and choices of Europe and Asia and the relative success compared to the rest of the world, we now offer the program as a three-day session. The extra day allows participants to gain a more thorough understanding of the dynamics of comparative advantage, sources of international conflict and the varied responses of economies to crisis.

  • Mariusz A: It was a life changing experience for me as the C level manager. The theoretical results were presented in such a lively and easy to understand manner that all the participants participated in the lectures (and by the way great show) with pleasure.

  • Kevin M: Terrific course! The faculty did a great job of making Macro Economics an intriguing journey around the globe. The case work was revealing, the BBNN model applicable to strategic decision making, and the MPESA success eye opening. Well done!

  • Armin S: Certainly one of the best courses I have taken at Sloan. Roberto is a very engaged and engaging lecturer, and makes complex concepts accessible as well as -dare I say- entertaining. I took away a much better understanding of the natural and political forces impacting the performance of a national economy. My only criticism relates to 1/2 day spent on "Innovation in Africa", mostly the M-PESA story. As interesting and well presented as it was, it remained oddly disconnected from the rest of the content and should therefore either have taken up less time or be better motivated.

  • Ahmed D: The program widen your horizon about the role of the economy and how is the nature of this dynamic system and about its stability and how can the politations move or force the stability of their economy. Also the important of the growth in improving the economy of the nation.

  • Mario M: The only thing that I would like to see if that the instructor control the emotions of students. Many students got hung up on their own theories instead of really understanding that the content was fact based and not just theory. It wasted a lot of class time and there are other students that are trying to get the whole picture and learn.
