INTERNATIONAL MACRO:WHAT EVERY MBA SHOULD KNOW

ECN7505

Course Description:

ECN7505: International Macro: What Every MBA Should Know 3 elective credits This course focuses on the intersection between international macroeconomics and business strategy. It highlights the movements of and interrelations among major macroeconomic variables that affect the performance of nations, in general, and businesses, in particular. None of these economic factors is controlled by any manager, but good managers must react to, cope with, and anticipate them. IM provides an intuitive, logical, and internally consistent framework for managers to: (1) function effectively in a world where business performance and strategies are affected by international institutions, domestic and global economic forces, as well as government and central bank policies , (2) evaluate whether government and central bank policies are sustainable, (3) create and critically evaluate country analyses, (4) clarify how changes in a country's economic climate affect corporate financial plans and capital budgeting decisions, and (5) improve financial projections (e.g., cash flow statements, income statements and balance sheets). With this knowledge, managers are better able to internalize, analyze, and make decisions based on the expected impact that economic, political, and social forces have on companies' strategies, competitive positions, and performances.
