Understand China's Impact on Your World
Enodo Economics Training Courses

Our courses will teach you the fundamentals of how China’s economy, political system and financial markets work, and how they affect the rest of the world. You will gain the knowledge needed to make better-informed investment and policymaking decisions, to uncover investment opportunities and to guard against idiosyncratic risks.

China is one of the most misunderstood countries in the world, yet one of the most important to figure out. Through its sheer size and integration into international supply chains, China impacts everything. Its meteoric rise and unique development model have transformed the global economy and financial markets in the past two decades.

You will learn directly from Enodo Economics’ team of experts, who together have more than 250 years of experience focusing on the economics, politics, markets and culture of China. We make use of bespoke online teaching videos of the highest professional standard. The material, carefully tailored to bring to life the content of each course, includes interviews with relevant figures whose personal stories illuminate the concepts being taught. Imaginative visual aids and animation are designed to enhance the learning experience – and make it fun!

We offer a variety of formats to suit your needs and budget. Whether you are looking for self-paced online only, online with live interaction or you want to build your own bespoke course from our suite of 100+ modules, then we have what you need.

Understanding the Chinese economy is not for the fainthearted. You have to make sense of the data but also be able to put it in the context of industrial policy, Beijing’s political priorities and so on. I liken it to doing a jigsaw without being able to see the picture on the box. Yet that’s what Diana Choyleva does so well in her regular commentary, which I’ve really enjoyed following, and now with the Enodo Economics program she’s put together. Take the courses and you’ll learn not only how to put the various pieces of the China puzzle together, you’ll get to see the whole picture.
Janet L. Yellen
US Secretary of the Treasury
Chair of the Federal Reserve, 2014-18
China matters. Even more than you realise. If you want to thrive and succeed in business, consulting, investing or policymaking you must really understand China and how it shapes the world. This programme created by Enodo Economics will help you do just that and stay at the top of your game. It’s rare to find unbiased, thoughtful and practical teaching by great communicators, but this is it. An indispensable guide.
