What happens with a country when it is on an economic fast-tract? What happens to the culture, norms and values? What happens to the countries relation with the 1st World economies? And how do they facilitate the change in the society so that they can sustain their newly achieved wealth? These are some of the questions we will seek to answer in an interactive and exploring learning environment. By the end of this course you will be able to understand and critically analyze emerging markets as a concept and you will have a broader and more holistic view on where the financial wealth will take them; politically, culturally, ethically, demographically, militarily and socially.
