Angel Pacual-Ramsay module Professor at ESADE Business School, former adviser to the head of the Spanish government in the analysis of economic and geopolitical trends
Module 4 - Globalization and sustainable development
The world in which business graduates like yourselves will be entering will be an extremely competitive one. You will need to be able to differentiate yourselves against your peers to give you that extra edge that employers will value. An essential component of this will be your ability to understand the world around you, the risks and opportunities it presents and your skill in incorporating these factors into your business decisions. In an age of economic, geopolitical, social, technological and demographic change, it is no longer sufficient to analyze in isolation the market forces affecting global business firms. Business leaders must learn to understand non-market elements and the forces that are shaping the challenging global business environment of the 21st century. This course will help you in that process. It will do so by exploring the 'mega-trends' that are shaping our world. These trends might be economic, geopolitical, social, technological, or related to resources and sustainability, but they all have one thing in common: they are conforming a very different world to the one we know today and it is this world that future business executives will have to operate within. By the end of this course you will understand the global trends that are shaping our world and have commenced the process of learning how to incorporate that awareness into their your thinking and decisions, in business as well as in life.
