Teaching Interest

Overview

by Eric D. Werker

Description

I taught for five years in the first-year MBA course, Business, Government, and the International Economy. I now teach Globalization and Emerging Markets to second-year MBAs, as well as an executive education module on global economics in the Owner/President Management program. In addition, I have led an experiential learning FIELD course in Mumbai and taught sessions in executive education courses at Harvard Kennedy School, and in Liberia and Tanzania. Many of the cases I teach are ones that I have written—about frontier- and emerging-market businesses, economies, organizations, and public-private partnerships in Africa, Asia, and Europe. I have enjoyed the challenge of bringing theoretical and conceptual frameworks to the study of business analysis in emerging markets, while remaining faithful to the case method of teaching.
