Globalization, Economic Growth and Stability

IE Business School

This Specialization on Globalization, Economic Growth and Stability offered by IE Business School aims to make economic concepts accessible to learners and teach them to analyze current events using the toolkit of economics.

It begins by explaining the basic parameters of the macroeconomy and how governments can influence growth, inflation, and employment through fiscal and monetary policy. Learners will then delve into the international arena, understanding free trade, exchange rates, the balance of payments, and immigration and how these interactions affect everyday lives. Finally, they will apply these tools and concepts to the world's leading economies, discovering important lessons about the risks and opportunities of doing business in these countries.

The course content spans three modules, covering economic policymaking, trade, immigration, exchange rates in a globalized world, and business opportunities and risks in a globalized economy.
