Emerging Markets and Country Risk Analysis

Summer Program: May 28 - August 6, 2024

Fordham's Summer Evening Program in Emerging Financial Markets and Country Risk Analysis is an intensive 10-week program designed for international business professionals as well as current graduate students. The program offers you the opportunity to develop the political, economic, and financial analytical skills that you need to evaluate the potential rewards and risks associated with the dynamic and volatile financial markets of Asia, Latin America, Africa, and Eastern Europe.

We strongly encourage visiting graduate students in the program to take full advantage of spending a summer in the world's leading financial center by doing an internship during the day with a major New York financial institution.

Government analysts may also find the program beneficial, given the importance of economic factors and emerging economies in today's geopolitical world.

All students who successfully complete the two-course sequence (Political Risk Analysis and Emerging Markets), with a grade point average of 3.0 or better, will earn a Certificate in Emerging Markets and Country Risk Analysis.

Application Deadline

The deadline for international students residing outside the United States is April 1, 2024. The final deadline to apply is May 1, 2024. 

Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 with at least two courses in college-level principles of economics. Students who also lack one graduate course or two undergraduate courses in finance with grades of B or better will be required to take a third additional course in Strategic Financial Management.

(The Certificate Program is registered with the New York State Department of Education, Hegis Code #2204, Program Code #22615.)
