This program will give you a compelling competitive advantage and an incredibly valuable credential for your career.

Whether you are already working in the financial sector, engineering, AI, manufacturing, the field of semi-conductors, supply chain management, or you want to get a job in any organization that interacts with China, then this is the program for you!

You will learn how the Chinese economy, the Chinese government/political system, central bank and financial markets work, and how they affect the rest of the world.

The international order is undergoing a fundamental shift, which we call The Great Decoupling, as the rules of engagement between the aspiring superpower, China, and the existing superpower, the United States, are rewritten. The two countries are rapidly drifting apart, a divergence that is set to shape global politics, the world economy and markets for years to come.

The covid-19 outbreak, which started in Wuhan, the capital of the Hubei province, and turned into a global pandemic, has accelerated the global impact of the Great Decoupling, especially when it comes to international supply chains.

As such, understanding China has never been more important.

You will learn how the Chinese think and what they value.

You will gain the knowledge needed to make informed business decisions and navigate a world in which China is swiftly becoming more assertive.

You will discover what China’s economic and geopolitical strategies, both domestic and global, mean for your organization.

You will learn how to deal with a culture which has a strong sense of identity and purpose and is governed by a Communist party intent on sticking to its own development path.

You will be rewarded with an incredibly valuable credential for your career.

Unbiased analysis, real-life examples and practical guidance will equip you with the analytical frameworks and tools to apply to your investments, business decisions, risk assessments or policymaking.

You will learn directly from Enodo Economics’ team of experts, who together have more than 250 years of experience focusing on the economics, politics, markets and culture of China.
