Globalization of Emerging Markets

by Tarun Khanna


A comprehensive look at emerging markets, including the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China), as they integrate with today's world economy. We will offer a conceptual framework to analyze emerging markets from multiple lenses - that of indigenous entrepreneurs struggling to overcome constraints to build world-class businesses, that of multinationals from the developed triad countries tapping into emerging markets for their next growth spurt, that of investors in the developed world seeking to profit from investment opportunities, and that of policymakers in developed and developing countries seeking to understand this new wave of globalization. The course is an experimental half-course that builds on our past decade of research in emerging markets, and draws on foundational material from first-year Strategy, Finance, and BGIE.
