The Hidden Potential of “Managerial Macroeconomics” for CEO Decision Making in MBA Programs


Macroeconomics has profound strategic and tactical implications for CEO decision making, yet many top-ranked business schools do not offer this subject in its appropriately integrative and applied management context. I illustrate how the careful cultivation of "macroeconomic literacy" in the MBA classroom using four innovative instructional strategies can improve CEO decision making across all functional areas of the firm while helping to meet important AACSB learning goals, including curriculum integration, application of interactive teaching strategies, soft skills enhancement, and promoting a global perspective. © Academy of Management Learning & Education, 2006.
