Country Risk Analysis (Macro-Economic Risk Indicators): Growth Potential, Economic Policy and External Finances of Emerging Markets [Summer School]

This description applies to an earlier year. For links to my 2019 Summer School courses at Maastricht University, please have a look at this overview.

Country Risk Analysis (Macro-Economic Risk Indicators): Growth Potential, Economic Policy and External Finances of Emerging MarketsThe Asian Crisis in 1997-1998, Argentina’s default in 2001 and the current economic problems in Russia underline the continued importance of country risk analysis for banks and companies that do business in Emerging Markets. The “Country Risk Analysis (Macro-Economic Risk Indicators)” Summer School helps you to better understand what country risk is and how you can assess the risks in Emerging Markets. The opening lectures teach you different ways to conceptualize country risk and how analysts at banks write their reports. Then you learn how to analyse the economic indicators of Emerging Markets and their (inter)national context in a step-by-step process. These lectures provide insights into the levels of economic indicators, their changes and their impact on country risk. You write a country risk report with your group and give two talks.

    Hi,

    Sounds like an interesting course. I wanted to know what the salary for political risk analysts in the US (NYC) is, approximately, on average as well as the low and high ends?

    Thanks
