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.

  • 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.

Participant Testimonial


"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."  - Shoma C.
