DESCRIPTION OF SYLLABUS CONTENTS
Course Design: The “Emergence of the BRIC Group” course is designed to examine the present and future dynamics of the four emerging marketplaces currently of the world (Brazil, Russia, India, and China), and their future impact upon the developing and developed worlds. The course will also focus on the objectives and purpose of the BRIC’s first meeting in Russia in June 2009. This course will also delineate the BRIC countries’ economies in terms of GDP (both nominally and the PPP). It will also address the BRIC Group’s future influence on the IMF as well as advantages of forming the group and future implications for the BRIC group.
Course Objective: The topical course will enable student participants the opportunity to critically discuss, analyze, and engage in Q & A sessions on The Role of the BRIC Group vis-à-vis the developed and developing worlds.
