Global E-MBA class learns new financial strategies in London

In their third international module since commencing their Global Executive MBA in September 2015, the participants were brought right to the heart of the European financial hub in London this June. Making up part of the course in Macroeconomics and Financial Markets, the trip combined academic perspectives with practical insights from companies operating on the London arena.

“It makes great sense to place the Macroeconomic and Financial Markets course in London - right in the thick of things,” said CBS E-MBA Associate Dean Jesper Rangvid, who was the faculty in charge during the trip.  “The trip to London aims to give students insight into the highly complex macroeconomic and financial environment in which their organisation operates. Ultimately, we want students to understand changes in the financial market in the wake of the 2008 crisis, and be able to translate movements into action plans”.

The participants enjoyed sessions with faculty at Ashridge Business School as well as visits to venture capitalists, banks and not least the London Stock Exchange. "Combining theory with live sessions in companies and institutions enhanced the learning experience and furthered our understanding of financial markets and mechanisms,” commented participant Dines Graakjær.” In addition, having this trip to London only one week before the "Brexit" referendum added another layer to our economic and financial debate in the class. Great timing!"

Programme Manager Hanne Gert Munk added: “Visiting other universities and getting under the skin of local companies and organisations add new, valuable perspectives to the learning experience. Furthermore, the international modules are also an excellent opportunity for the class to get to know each other better and understand how they can use each other academically and as sparring partners in their jobs. We hear time and time again from graduates that one of the most valuable aspects of the MBA experience is the network and the interaction with other individuals in their class. The modules abroad play a big role in cementing those relationships.”
