Emerging markets have caused a major shift in the global economic and geopolitical landscape. The potential for high growth generates significant investment interest in emerging markets. The benefits apply to the foreign investors who provide a much-needed influx of capital as well as the emerging markets as they transition from an agriculture-based economy to a more developed economy based on the production of goods and services.

In this course, you will explore the concept of the E20+1 (the top 20 emerging markets and China), discuss these entities, and examine the growth of emerging market multinationals. You will discover the competition they represent for well-established firms in other economies.

You will examine these factors and identify which countries are moving up the list of the top 20 across the globe. You will discover the drivers of emerging markets, the different ways they compete in a global marketplace, and the ways they use innovation to gain an edge.
