Programme Structure

The Leading Economic Growth program focuses on enabling participants to diagnose the opportunities for and constraints to growth at the city, state, or national level, and to build the institutional framework to achieve shared growth.  

The challenges that countries face in expanding and diversifying their portfolio of capabilities will be highlighted in lectures, how-to sessions, and case study discussions. Participants will examine several comparative frameworks for development and, through small group and class sessions, discuss the applicability of the frameworks to their own countries. 

The curriculum will include an in-depth look at specific topics that address the central role of complexity in a country’s economy: 

  • Diversification
  • The nature of growth and structural transformation
  • Organizational architecture and design
  • Policy implementation.
