Summer School of Economics and Business

6 or 12 ECTS credits, June 25th - July 20th, 2018

One or two subjects chosen from the following:

 

A) Economics Track:

  1. Environmental Economics and Policy Analysis: This subject studies the main issues related to public environmental policies and management. In particular, the course deals with the role of the Public Sector for internalizing environmental externalities through public policies. The subject also studies the valuation of the benefits and costs of those policies. Some issues will be analyzed in depth: environmental taxation and ecological tax reforms, climate change economics, and some applications. As a result, students will be able to understand the justification and effects of environmental public policies, as well as to formulate them, and analyze them. Students will also develop useful abilities for their professional life, and they will learn methodological tools valuable for careers in the public and private sectors or in Academia.
  2. International Finance: This course aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to develop tasks linked to financial management in internationalized firms, and, more specifically, in multinational firms. In particular, the course will analyze the operative segments of the international financial markets, as well as its products, in order to get financial resources and financial instruments to hedge risks to which the internationalized firm is exposed. Furthermore, the course will deal with specific issues that are relevant for the financial management of the multinational firm. Likewise, the course will analyze how the international environment affects the internationalized firm and how to cope with it. The course is primarily based on a combination of lectures (theory) and case studies (concepts in action). A number of related readings are proposed alongside the topics. Some group assignments will allow students to put learnings into practice.

 

B) Business Track:

  1. Global Marketing: This course will provide the participating students with a decision-oriented framework for the development and implementation of global marketing programs. Consequently, students will learn to analyze, select, and implement appropriate conceptual frameworks pertaining to five broad management decisions related to global marketing management: Whether or not going International; deciding which market to enter; deciding how to enter a foreign market; designing the global marketing program; and implementing and coordinating the global marketing program. At the end of the course, students will be better equipped to understand how firms can achieve international competitiveness by designing, implementing, and controlling global marketing programs.
  2. Doing Business in Spain: This course will provide the participating students with a decision-oriented framework for the development and implementation of doing business in Spain programs. Consequently, students will learn to analyze, select, and implement appropriate conceptual frameworks pertaining to five broad management topics related to doing business in Spain: Understanding Spanish culture; analyzing Spanish firms; deciding to be employee or entrepreneur; knowing the negotiation processes; and adapting to the etiquette and protocol typical of Spain. At the end of the course, students will be better equipped to understand how to do business in Spain, whether they want to be entrepreneurs or employees.
