Country Investment Decision is an interactive exercise in which students adopt the role of an International Fund Advisor. Students must study the data available about different countries in order to prioritize the investment options and make a final investment proposal.
The exercise is designed so that different data sets of real countries are firstly considered individually before all the data together is taken into account to make a final proposal. The topics covered are economic indicator data, institutional data, and finally social and political risk data. At each decision stage, the student must justify their choices. A professor’s page displays graphically the evolution of decisions.

Making money on oil EC2-108-M
Through a simulation based on a petroleum futures market, students put into practice their knowledge of the supply and demand model. Students play this simulation in a network, competing against one another to top an investment leader-board across a series of rounds.
In each round, students watch a video news report and then have to decide how the events mentioned will affect the future price of oil. After taking their positions in the market, a second video provides feedback and students then see their gains/losses and how the results have affected their standing in the class leader-board.Academic Area:Economic Environment & Public Affairs
