Sobre o 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.

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.

Very good course, as all in the specialization, the professor shows a great devotion to getting the students to understand these very complex topi

The content covers very good the most important theories and concepts in macro economy and explains in detail the relationship between them. I wish the course would take more advantage of interactive multimedia tools in order to support the spoken word with visual means.

This is a good course, but be sure you have a foundational level of understanding of Macroeconomics before starting - it doesn't provide a lot of background before diving into more advanced topics.

The lectures could have been more engaging and interactive. This seems to be a problem of the lecturer I guess. But overall it was a great experience learning.

por Phani M

The scope of subject has been a lot reduced. Not ideal for an MBA course - doesn't cover most relevant & current topics - but good in overall teaching.

Learn something about the money supply and demand and their relationship with the exchange rate. but can hardly used in daily

por Anup P

Professor needs to make the content more interactive and must include more examples since the concepts and theory is too dry

por Kavi K

Interesting and pertinent material but some of the video content is dry and makes it hard to grasp the concepts.
