Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) will conduct a new intensive course ‘Understanding Global Markets’ from December 3-5 for executives to gain a deeper knowledge of the movement of global markets.
Led by GU-Q associate professor and director of International Economics, Dr Alexis Antoniades, the course enables participants to anticipate, understand, explain, and respond to movements in the international financial system. The three-day course will provide executives with an in-depth analysis of the components of the financial system, of the dynamics that characterise them, and of the mechanisms that connect them.
“There is a noticeable increase in uncertainty and anxiety among investors about the state of the global economy in 2017,” said Antoniades, who is an expert on international finance and on the economies of Gulf countries. “Understanding Global Markets will provide executives and business leaders with the theoretical framework and tools needed to make sense of what is going on in the markets now, and will equip them with the intuition to anticipate changes in the short- to medium-run, so that they can better prepare themselves and their companies for the challenges and
opportunities ahead.”
Although the programme is aimed at mid- to senior-level professionals, the content will be beneficial to participants from a range of backgrounds, from those working in finance and marketing to strategy, human resources, and media.
Antoniades is a Fulbright scholar who holds a PhD in Economics from Columbia University. He has previously worked as an assistant economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and was awarded the Niehaus Fellowship by Princeton University in 2012 – a fellowship given to the most talented scholar on issues of globalisation and governance. He spent the 2012-2013 academic year at Princeton, where he became a member of the European Union Programme at the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs.
