Master Class. Rescuing the euro: elements for a foundation of a sustainable monetary union in Europe
IE Italy Club Nov 05, 2012
You will have the opportunity to experience what a real class at IE is like and discuss ideas on a current topic. You will see the difference between traditional teaching methodologies and the methods used by the best schools in the world, based on real cases, team work and interactive study. Participants will also receive an introduction to the school and its programs and they will be able to directly ask our regional representatives any questions they may have.
ABOUT THE EVENT:
The euro is dead. Long live the euro! There is no doubt that today the time has come that defines the future. We Europeans have lived in complacency for too many years. In part this has been justified because the euro actually gave us ten years of spectacular economic growth, financial and price stability, and even better social and regional cohesion in Europe. But it has also revealed the extent of our ignorance. Let's explore with prof. Fernandez the elements for a foundation of a sustainable monetary union in Europe.
