This international economics program presents tools and frameworks to help executives understand and predict the medium- to long-run performance of economies in order to mitigate risk, develop growth plans, and make investment decisions, both locally and abroad. Participants will leave this macroeconomics course better able to make business decisions that take global markets and macroeconomics into account and how to interpret economic change in the context of their organization.

Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives is designed to help business leaders better understand monetary policy and central bank decision making, and how these factors impact the countries in which they operate. This popular program explores international monetary policy and how the economies across Europe, Asia, and the United States affect one another, especially in times of crises.

Participants in this course gain a deeper understanding of how central banks function, the dynamics of comparative advantage, how contagion occurs, sources of international conflict, and the varied responses of economies to crisis. Executives leave the program with a better understanding of the current global economic environment, its future, its effects on their companies over the mid to long term, and how to assess and navigate macroeconomic challenges.

MIT Sloan Professor Roberto Rigobon brings this content to life. His fun, fast-paced, high-energy teaching style helps to convey how highly relevant macroeconomics are to businesses today.
