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.

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.
