  1. La economía de Cuba (1959-2009) EC1-118

    Cuba has been ruled for over 50 years by a socialist centralized system, with Fidel Castro as a supreme leader until 2007, when his brother Raul Castro took over power. Until the falling of the Berlin Wall, Cuba depended upon the Soviet Union’s economic support. After this geopolitical shift, the Caribbean country faced a new situation with light reforms that temporarily alleviated the suffering economy of Cuba. However, until 2009 there had been no real compromise, nor structural reforms necessary to transition towards a market economy. When Raul Castro sat on the driver’s seat, the possibility of political and economic change seemed closer.

  3. Evolución del precio del petróleo EC1-115-M

    This case is designed to introduce students to the basic tools of supply and demand and to observe and predict how they operate in a real market that is constantly grabbing headlines: the global petroleum market. The analysis of this interactive multimedia case is based around those events that have affected the price of oil from 1970 to 2013.

    Students will be presented with a series of historical events that affected the price of oil on the world market. They study each of these and then predict the effects on price by shifting the curves on the traditional supply and demand model.

    The World Oil Prices interactive exercise has been used successfully across a range of masters programs, from Masters in Management through to MBA and executive programs. The material would be suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate economics courses, once the initial supply and demand theory has been grasped.

  7. ¿Cómo se negocia en España? NG1-107

    This case presents four interviews about the negotiation culture in Spain, conducted with Chinese, French, Cuban and Japanese people who have a broad experience in Spain. They describe and interpret the predominant negotiation culture in Spain from the particular viewpoint of their own culture, and in the different spheres of their business: international commerce, construction industry, technology and the diplomatic world.

    The diversity of perspectives and experiences pose a challenge in summarizing the negotiation culture in Spain, customs, attitudes, beliefs and most common behaviors that are found when searching for solutions to solve a dispute in this country.

    And so, in short, the case does not only address the question of how negotiations are done in Spain but also, for someone who comes to Spain to negotiate, it provides inputs for a discussion on: How should you negotiate with Spaniards?

  8. Portugal: Los desequilibrios económicos EC1-120

    This case investigates how drastic changes in politics within short periods of time in Portugal in the 70s and 80s didn’t help the country grow but instead helped it to sink further into poverty as well as how after gaining a small amount of stability the country’s situation started to improve the economic indicators. In this case students will learn to see that the majority of times extreme changes in a country’s politics only make it further worsen with every change until a point of stability is reached.
