Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives (extended)

Dates:

This program is an extended version of our popular two-day session Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives, which has been offered since 2010. 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 are introducing this three-day session. The extra day will allow 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.

  • 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.
