Description

This three-day 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 the program 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 started as a two-day course, but due to participant enthusiasm, it is now offered in a three-day format. This additional time lets participants more thoroughly explore 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.

The tools and frameworks presented in this program will enable participants to:

  • Learn to interpret financial indicators
  • Recognize economic trends
  • Predict likely actions of central banks and governments
  • Understand the nature and behavior of financial crises
  • Make more informed off-shoring and international investment decisions
