About the Topic: The Global Macro Environment: Trends, Themes, and Implications for International Business. An understanding of the global macro landscape serves as an important foundation for decision making, especially for complex businesses operating in the international / emerging market environment.  The current macro climate is particularly dynamic and thus important for businesses to follow and assess in terms of possible strategic impact.  This presentation will highlight the current macro-economic landscape, explore emergent macro themes, and conclude with a discussion and examples of how these inputs/observations inform decision making and help to uncover opportunities in selected industries.

The MBA Open lecture will take place at Anglo-American University, Letenská 5 in room 2.07. Light refreshments will be provided. Please register via Facebook or e-mail at
