The increasing importance of financial activity in everyday life has pushed us to devise a unique educational program to train future classes of future leaders to understand not only the complexity of financial dynamics in globalized markets, but knowing how to grasp the connection between geopolitics and finance and their strategic implications
Through a simple and accessible didactic approach, EMSE allows participants to analyze the interconnections between geopolitical events and the financial markets trends. The main focus is oriented to the discovery of the bilateral relationship between macro-economic and financial dynamics, and global cultural, political and social changes.
