Executive Programme in Global Economics for Managers has been designed to help participants gain the required insights in economic analysis and policy in a global context. The programme introduces the participants to basic economic principles, theories, tools and some important applications. After the successful completion of the programme, the participants should be better able to comprehend the significance of economic events happening around them. Why do mergers take place and why do the regulators sometimes try to stop mergers? How are markets segmented and different prices charged to different sets of customers? How is the foreign exchange rate determined and why did it increase after the US Financial crisis? What is a repo/reverse repo rate? When and why does the Reserve Bank of India increase/decrease these rates? How is recession caused? What is fiscal deficit? Why is there so much of controversy around it? Why has India been cautious in going for full capital account convertibility? Questions such as these illustrate the type of issues which will be taken up in the course.

Core Value Proposition:

The business environment has changed quite radically in India in recent years. To be effective and successful, executives need to understand how the economy functions and how different economic events and policies affect their areas of operations. Such understanding is particularly essential in the complex, globalised environment in which economies operate today. The current programme is aimed at providing this understanding to the participants. Given that IIMC faculty members continuously have to relate their teaching to the real world in classroom lectures, they are particularly in a position to show participants how to apply economic understanding in day to day life. Benefits
  • This program would give the participants a global perspective
  • The successful participants would form a set that is more equipped to handle situations of global businesses.
  • Successful participants become IIMC-LDP alumni, which has its own sets of advantages for identity, brand value, and marketability of the participants.
Schedule & Duration:

  • One Year

Who Should Attend:

The potential participants are those who require knowledge of Economics in their jobs but do not possess it and want to fill up this gap. Persons from a wide range of professions may belong to this group. Examples would be professionals in specialized fields such as a lawyer working in a law firm. The target group may also include people with MBAs or equivalent degrees/diplomas who may feel that their knowledge of Economics is inadequate. It may be noted that barring a few exceptions, teaching of Economics in management institutes in the country is not of a very high order. It is also expected that organizations such as banks will be interested in sponsoring candidates as a part of their training programs for their officers particularly the fresh recruits. Moreover, journalists working for business magazines and newspapers will also be interested in acquiring a solid grounding in economic theories and applications.
