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.

  • Shoma C: Absolutely engrossing, entertaining and enlightening. This is a teacher who is humble enough to share knowledge, but great enough so as to make it fun. For those of us who attended, our lives are changed - never again will we idly listen to the news about quantitative easing, or bond interest rates going up or down, or economic crisis in Greece or the austerity measures in EU... the connections between the world economy and our lives, our own financial prospects as well as our businesses' have been firmly explained and solidified in this short 3-day session. Look forward to learning more..

  • Juan Carlos A: If you really want to understand how the world works and how to take advantage of trends and changes, you MUST take this course. Mecroeconomics does not get simpler and more impactful than this.

  • 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.
