Acerca del Curso

This course discusses how macroeconomic variables affect individuals’ personal, professional, and public activities and lays the foundation for the analysis of the mechanisms that drive macroeconomic variables. It starts by introducing the key macroeconomic variables and explaining how they are defined and measured to interpret macroeconomic data properly. Then, the course offers a perspective for separating out various parts of the economy driven by different processes and for combining those components to develop a richer view of the whole. In particular, it applies this approach to the analysis of the relationship of the trade deficit with the budget deficit and private savings, offering insights about some key determinants of the balance of payments. The third and fourth modules focus on the analyses of the foreign currency and money markets to provide fundamental models of the interest rate and exchange rate determination. They also discuss how these variables interact with each other and with the macroeconomic conditions, particularly monetary policy, and the expectations about the future trends in the economy. You will be able to: • Systematically assess the national and international economic environment in which you live and work • Analyze macroeconomic issues using key tools • Be a more effective professional in your line of activity. This course is part of Gies College of Business’ suite of online programs, including the iMBA and iMSM.

Me gustó mucho. Lo encontré desafiante y sobre todo muy entretenido. Éste tipo de cursos (en general todo el programa especializado de 'Managerial Economics') valen la pena para invertir tiempo.

The quizzes and assignments may be hard but that's how I learned so much from this class. Prof Hadi brought this course in a way that made me understand the actual situations.

Thank you so much for this course.

I would like to say that the content is interesting. The material and lessons are interesting.

I like very much the approach on assignments

My recommendations to 5 starts is the following:

Spend more time in sharing your thought process in very small steps as you go through the content to allow the student to build intuition about the topics. Also simulating typical pitfalls is very interesting.

The use of theory and associated equations is critically important and was explained well. What lacked was the application of this theory by example to build intuition and confidence in practice. Perhaps some "what-if" scenarios explained and exemplified with real-world events/records.

Extremely beneficial to those wanting to learn about country level macroeconomics. The support reading material is on point but densely packed for the initiate. Get ready for a thought provoking experience, that will test your analytical skills.
