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?
