Global Economy Course Launches with Interview with Two Formers US Treasury Secretaries
The session marked the launch of the Global Economy MBA course redesigned this year by Professors Kim Ruhl and Kim Schoenholtz. The course also features the first NYU Stern Economic Growth Competition. Teams of students will work to identify leading obstacles or risks to sustained economic growth in one of ten countries and propose a rule or policy change to promote stable, long-run growth. The top student projects will be judged by a panel of distinguished market economists, who will award the winning team the new Henry Kaufman Prize for Economic Analysis on April 30.
MBA students discussed prospects for economic growth with Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Secretaries, during the Q&A session.
