This is a course on competitiveness and economic development, taking a bottom-up and microeconomic perspective. This course is built upon the FETP's traditional Marketing Places course but takes a new path, which is extensively informed by the Microeconomics of Competitiveness course pioneered by Michael Porter at the Harvard Business School.

The objective of this course is to address the question: How does a constituency (national government, sub-national government, region, cluster, industry association and others) build up its competitiveness to achieve the development goals?

The course will make an extensive use of case studies, mostly drawn from the FETP and Harvard Business School's case libraries. Before each class, the students are encouraged to read and prepare the case well in advance since a significant part of the course grade will be based on participation. The course also involves a team project in which the team assesses the competitiveness of and makes recommendations for a particular constituency.
