Goals

SELECT UP TO MAXIMUM 3 GOALS AMONG THE FOLLOWING 5, DELETING THOSE NOT PRIOR FOR THIS SPECIFIC COURSE

The course fits into the overall program curriculum pursuing some of the defined general learning goals. In particular, the course contributes to the development of the following capabilities:

  • Understand context, functions, processes in a business and industrial environment and the impact of those factors on business performance

  • Design solutions applying a scientific and engineering approach (Analysis, Learning, Reasoning, and Modeling capability deriving from a solid and rigorous multidisciplinary background) to face problems and opportunities in a business and industrial environment

  • Interact in a professional, responsible, effective and constructive way in a working environment, also motivating group members


Expected learning outcomes

The course will allow students to:

1) understand the functioning of some of the main international institutions;

2) know how changes in the regulations and institutions affect business decision making in an international environment;

3) analyse the international environment to develop adequate solutions to internationalization challenges and opportunities;

4) discuss issues and solutions in international teams.

 


Topics

The course will introduce students to international markets, the role of international institutions, providing detailed examples through the IMF, World Bank, and the WTO. In addition it will cover a basic framework for the economics of European integration, discussing scale effects, market size, preferential liberalization, growth effects, while providing examples of specific related EU policies.


Sustainable Development Goals
This teaching activity contribute to the achievement of the following Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda:
  • SDG8 - DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
  • SDG9 - INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Point 1, 2, 3 and 4 are directly connected to the above mentioned SDGs, discussing the role of international institutions and policies with respect to these goals.

The part on the EU also discusses the issues of decent work, growth, innovation and infrastructure.

 

About 10 hours are dedicated to SDG.

 


Pre-requisites

Knowledge of basic economics principles is strongly suggested to fully benefit from the course. Especially students that did not take a course in Economics in their undergraduate studies, are strongly adviced to take the online course "Fundamentals of Economcis" available on the Politecnico website https://www.pok.polimi.it/courses/course-v1:Polimi+ECON101+2019_M5/about


Assessment

The final evaluation will be in two parts:

a)     there will be a final written team project which will be a mock European Commission proposal. These proposals will be discussed during some of the practice sessions, allowing students to receive feedback before submitting the final version. This will be graded on a 0-30 scale. There is no possibility to resubmit this project (unless the mark is a fail).
 
b)    On some of the practice sessions debates will take place. For these, students are asked to submit some of their arguments before (about 1/2-1 page in bullet points prepared by teams), for which an additional maximum 3 points can be obtained (leading to the total maximum grade attainable on the course to be 33).
