Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives

November 2-4, 2020

Overview


Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives 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.


This course is designed to help business leaders 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 participants 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


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.

  • Understand the nature and behavior of financial crises

  • Learn to interpret financial indicators

  • Recognize economic trends

  • Predict likely actions of central banks and governments

  • Make informed off-shoring decisions

  • Be successful in international investments
