You’re always looking for ways to understand the ups and downs of the economy and its long-term impact on your business, but sometimes your ‘crystal ball’ is a bit murky, or worse yet, MIA.

But what if the tools to assess the vagaries of the economy and what they mean for your business have been available all along?

In this class, presented by the Purdue University Krannert School of Management Executive MBA, learn how to utilize national wealth accounting to better analyze and forecast in the overall economic environment. Participants will take away tools to evaluate the underlying productive base of an economy, and gauge the sustainability of economic trends and the implications for their business.
