Executive education

Economics programs

ETIS Lanka offers an alternative economics to that taught in most universities, one that has a more practical approach for those that require economic inputs into their business and investment decision-making.

Our executive training programs make use of data on real-world developments in the Sri Lankan and global economies.

The course aims to equip participants with an alternative, more real-world, economics training than that provided by most Universities. This will be done in the context of a demystification of the economics taught in higher education, and an unpacking of what are perceived to be problems with the standard economics texts used in the teaching of economics courses from secondary school onwards.

The course aims to provide participants with a more real-world understanding of financial markets in general, and the Sri Lankan financial markets in particular. Considerable emphasis is placed on current debates focusing on the emergence of digital currencies, the changing nature of wholesale money markets, the development of non-bank electronic payments mechanisms, the changing objectives of central banks and the monetary policy instruments they are using, and the emergence of new global payments systems that are seeking to by-pass the US dollar.

The aim of the course is to aid business executives understand the global and Sri Lankan economies, and our reports on these (see below for more on reports) by providing an insight into our views on the economic foundations for understanding these economies and trends in them. Particular attention is paid to the foundations for our explanation of actual and forecast trends in the global and Sri Lankan economies for business (and investment) decision-making.
