FGV-EAESP GNAM WEEK March, 2018

 

DEVELOPMENT OF A GLOBAL MINDSET: 

THE CHALLENGES OF AN EMERGING MARKET 

 

 

Course Description

 

" The number of people living in high growth economies or in countries with per capita incomes at OECD levels has increased fourfold over the last 30 years – from 1 billion to 4 billion, according to the Growth Commission. The rapid integration into world markets by six of the largest non-OECD economies (Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa, together known as the BRIICS) was an important component of globalisation during the past two decades. Economic incentives across world markets, and in the BRIICS in particular, have been aligned more closely with countries’ and businesses’ genuine strengths. " (OECD, 2009)
