The Future of Money is Digital Currency.
~ Bill Gates
Our Cash-free Future is Getting Closer.
~ NY Times
Global Economy has changed significantly owing to the impact of Digitization over the last century. The world has grown smaller as economic borders have thinned. Events in one country now cause huge impact on other countries and the global supply chain of economic activities are expanding at a rapid pace.
Along with the economy, the concept of money is also changing. Traditionally, currencies have ruled the roost. However, new disruptions like digital currency in general and Central Bank Issued Digital Currency in particular are catalyzing the way settlements are expected to happen. Despite the tendencies of post-pandemic de-globalization, the nature of digitization is expected to continue creating a new environment.
If you are a senior professional having 10+ years of experience working in global economy, investments, funds management, international finance, global supply chain or international trade, you need to understand how the global economy is evolving and how digital currencies will impact your portfolio.
Adapting to this brave new world will require an open mind to change and an appetite for learning. The Advanced Programme in Global Economy and Digital Money helps professionals build new capabilities to understand digital currencies and learn how to leverage techno-economic disruptions for business growth and profitability.

The global economy has gone through multiple stages since the barter system. Invention of Currency as a system of exchanging value and the advent of the internet are probably the top two inventions which had the most impact on the global economy to bring us to the current state in the year 2020.
When currency came into being, it created a common measure for both goods and services to be exchanged between traders. Similarly, when the internet came along, the market for products and services became global. With the flexibility of currency conversion the world became the playground for businesses. With the economy becoming digital, doing business in a world without borders is now a reality.
Add to this the recent development of Central Bank Issued Digital Currencies. Now that currency itself is becoming digital, it opens up an even larger canvas for the global economy. The ongoing digital revolution is expected to lead to a radical departure from the traditional model of monetary exchange of value. This will accelerate innovation, create businesses that were never thought of and will increase the speed of domestic and cross-border transactions at reduced transaction costs. This will drive the economy to a new direction, not envisaged so far.
In this new digitally disruptive economy, professionals will be called upon to drive productivity and growth and play the role of
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is driving transformational disruption at all levels of society. Driven by the ability to collect, use and analyse massive amounts of data, a new value will be created in the economy over the next decade to be based on digitally-enabled platforms.
Just the way the Internet transformed how we do business, digital technologies will change the way people and businesses transact value. Companies need to re-imagine how to create, distribute and capture value in this new environment. Digital money is the future as it can potentially expand international commerce, support financial inclusion, and change ways we shop, save and do business.
All this makes digital economy expertise a must in the new world order.
Money has always occupied a central position in the global economy. The technological disruption has spurred on the need to service new forms of exchange and transaction. More devices will become connected and digital currencies, including crypto currencies, will add to the intensity of transaction growth, blurring the distinction between money and data. This proliferation of digital currencies and new payment systems will create both challenges and opportunities for businesses.
Adapting to this brave new world of proliferating virtual currencies is the need of the hour. This programme will give you the essential tools and capabilities needed to leverage the ongoing techno-economic disruptions for business growth and profitability.
Business Leaders, Investment Managers, Finance Professionals and Treasury Managers across the industries including Banking, Finance, Insurance, Consulting, Technology, International Trade, and others. Economists, Regulators and Educationalists who focus on the global economy and future of money.
The programme will provide a foundation to adapt to this new world of proliferating virtual currencies and accordingly make business decisions that promote business growth and profitability.
The safety of our faculty and participants is of utmost importance. Keeping in mind the same, we are starting the programme with interactive online classes that can be attended from the safety of home.
