The final project for this course is the creation of an economic risk mitigation proposal. Professionals working in areas of finance and economics combine an understanding of the business and management issues related to the real-world activities of public and private entities worldwide, with a sound knowledge of macroeconomic theory and policy tools and technical skills. They are frequently asked to interpret data to draw research-based conclusions regarding activities of the firms they manage, in relation to broader macroeconomic phenomena. In this project, you will develop the ability to understand how economy-wide or regional economic forces affect decisions of senior business management officials in the private sector. The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. Your comprehensive proposal will be submitted in Module Nine.
