Eurasia Group announces strategic risk management executive education course with GLOBIS University in Tokyo

6 March 2017

NEW YORK, 6 March — Eurasia Group is pleased to announce its first executive training course in Japan. “Strategic Risk Management: Threats and Opportunities in Global Politics” is a two-day program for senior business executives offered with GLOBIS University in Tokyo on 25-26 October 2017.
Changes in the global political environment, as evidenced by Brexit and the 2016 US presidential election, can have sudden and massive impacts on economics and the global financial environment. Those changes, in turn, drive cycles of conflict and instability. Today, more than ever, success in the global marketplace demands an acute and educated understanding of the drivers and measures of political risk and its impacts.
“Global investors are increasingly aware that political factors play an important role in business success, but there are few options for executives to learn the tools for assessing and managing threats and opportunities,” said Ian Bremmer, Eurasia Group's president and instructor for the course. “This course will offer participants an invaluable lens through which to talk about risk and reward in some of the world's most challenging markets.”
The course will also be taught by:
  • Takashi Mitachi, Senior Partner and Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group
  • Alexander Kazan, Managing Director of Emerging Markets Strategy and Comparative Analytics, Eurasia Group
