Course description

In a world led by digital transformation, globalisation and increasingly specialised professional profiles, company managers must adapt to a constantly changing sector, and the economy becomes the factor that reaches every business operational strategy.

Do you know how to analyse the macroeconomic data of any country, economy and market to boost your operations? Do you know the financial factors to increase your international influence? How to interpret variables to predict possible scenarios and project success in your strategies?

In this programme for executives, Daniel Lacalle delves into the main variables that dictate global economic growth, the origins and consequences of international financial crises, and monetary policy as a tool for demand policy; all this while taking a closer look at Fintech and the impact of digital money on new markets.

An innovative challenge for leaders of the future, a key knowledge for those organisations whose objective goes beyond the boundaries of their possibilities.
