Welcome to the Initiative on Global Markets

The massive global movements of capital, products, and talent in the modern economy have fundamentally changed the nature of business in the 21st century. They have also generated confusion among policymakers and the public.

Chicago Booth will continue our role as thought leader on how these markets work, their effects, and the way they interact with policies and institutions.

The Initiative on Global Markets will organize our efforts. It will support original research by Chicago Booth faculty, prepare our students to make good decisions in a rapidly changing business environment, and exchange ideas with policymakers and leading international companies about the biggest issues facing the global economy.

The Initiative will span three broad areas:

By enhancing the understanding of business and financial market globalization, and by preparing MBA students to thrive in a global environment, the initiative will help improve financial and economic decision-making around the world.
