About the Course

The course analyzes challenges faced by transition and emerging-market economies, i.e., those middle- and low-income countries, which have conducted market-oriented economic reforms and become integrated into the global economy since 1990s. It starts from a brief history of communist economic system based on central planning in the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe, its evolution and collapse at the end of 1980s/ early 1990s and subsequent transition to a market system in 1990s and 2000s. Then it analyzes experience of market reforms in China, India, other Asian countries, Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America at the same period. Finally, it discusses the problems of contemporary global economy and global and regional economic governance with the special focus given to emerging-market economies and their role. By the end of the course you will be able to analyse emerging-market economies and economies in transition, taking into account their crucial characteristics and historical experience. Participation in the course does not require any preconditions, however, basic economic knowledge would be an advantage. In order to pass successfully this course you must score not less than 80% for each of six after module quizzes and complete the peer-assessed essay at the end of the course.

Dull lectures that are not supported by slides in any meaningful way. Some test questions are about material that was never covered.

Interesting topic, not so good speaker. Would like to see more graphic materials following text on the slides.

It's a very dry course. The material is very limited and the coverage has to be more lively with some some relevant examples.

Professor Marek Dabrowski wrapped up this course by his huge knowledge in economics, geopolitics, history, International relation. Despite the fact that his English was not as good as a native speaker, the course is really interesting and helpful! It contains a huge load of knowledge that you will need more hours to finish than the recommended time in the introduction. But it worth the time and effort.

The material to be covered in this course is vast, and so one needs a professor with an equally vast knowledge of all of this: geographical, historical, and of course economical. Professor Dambrowski provides this. I cannot recommend this course highly enough.

I strongly recommend this course due to the fact that I have learnt a lot things about Emerging Market Economies and International Institutions. Even though I am an economist, I can ensure that this course is worth it.

Excellent explanation and transition overview of how economics are growing. However, I was not from proper economic background and so Faced some difficulties in understanding special terms used such as crawling peg, anchoring etc. Worth it if you can do handwork and have a spark to learn global perspective of emerging market economies .
