Geopolitics, globalization and Business Strategy

Summer Program

Jérémy-Ghez-quote
The Geopolitics, Globalization and Business Strategy Summer Program lets participants broaden their horizons and consider how what happens beyond the market can affect their activities.

Jérémy Ghez

WHY THIS SUMMER PROGRAM?

  • Created and taught by leading HEC Paris Professors
  • Real life cases based on current geopolitical and geostrategic issues
  • Accessible to students of all backgrounds who wish to integrate global political and macroeconomic issues into their thinking
  • Guest speakers representative of major world regions
  • Unparalleled opportunity to collaborate with diverse peers as part of student work group
  • Real life experience: final presentation to jury of renowned professionals.

A PROGRAM ROOTED IN CURRENT ECONOMIC REALITIES

An important issue lies in drawing operational implications from geopolitical analysis for businesses and decision-makers. Business executives can become easily obsessed with their inboxes, and be tempted to micromanage, isolate issues and be excessively backward-looking in their analyses as a result. In the Business and Geopolitics Summer School Program, participants will explore how geopolitics can help decision-makers broaden horizons and enrich their strategies by integrating in their thinking global political and macroeconomic issues.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of the summer program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the strategic landscape in which decisions are made;
  • Assess business risks and opportunities entailed by geopolitical dynamics;
  • Monitor changes in the international landscape, including the likelihood of low-probability and high-impact events (black swans);
  • Integrate geopolitical analysis in the firm’s broader international and risk-mitigation strategies;
  • Develop a long-term, consistent strategy and vision, beyond mere day-to-day tactics.
