Any entrepreneur who decides to make an investment plan or simply to elaborate a future project has to take into account the evolution and perspectives of the main macroeconomic variables. The performance of a project is highly correlated with the evolution of the economy in general and cannot be disassociated from it.
It is not the same to make an investment in a recession where expected demand is lower, although interest rates will be lower, than in full expansion where the entrepreneur will face a higher aggregate demand, but more complicated financing conditions.
This course aims to provide guidelines so that students can handle economic information and extract the necessary conclusions for the analysis of their company.
For students who have a degree in Economics or ADE can serve as a review of content, but above all to share them with a perspective of applied analysis. For those who do not have previous knowledge of economics, the course allows you to reach them but in a very selective and orderly way, so that you can catch up with your peers easily.

1. Theoretical presentations alternated with practical exposure so as to see their relationship with results in business. The interrelation between theory and practice is a methodology in which students must be involved. This methodological issue will be used for both business executives and professionals, and for recent graduates who want to join the same course.
2. Several case studies are sent from those that companies have been facing in real life for students, with the relevant knowledge acquired, to do the analysis between the different lines of action that may arise and choose the one considered more realistic and adjusted to the case. The student should become accustomed to making decisions and understand the implications of them.
3. Case studies and readings will be sent to participants through the virtual campus. At the same time chat forums or debate centres may be created on campus or virtual in which the views of the participants will be contrasted. . These tools will be used by the students to contrast their different points of view.
4. Virtual Campus is a tool that allows a much more fluid relationship between students and teachers at personal and on line level.
5. Teaching the course will take into account how the student intends to apply the knowledge acquired to the final project at the end of the Master.
