Local assessment of potential development

This is a subject on competitiveness and economic development from the perspective of microeconomics. The course will help participants answer the question: How does a unit or organization (central government, local government, industry clusters, industry associations, etc.) build the competitiveness of a region? or local to achieve your development goals.

Specifically, after the course, students are expected to be able to:

  • Analyzing and assessing the current socio-economic status and competitiveness of a region, province or city
  • Assessment of strengths, weaknesses, development potentials and challenges for economic sectors of a region, province or city
  • Apply regional and local development models and principles to formulate economic development strategies for a region, province or city in Vietnam.
  • Participate in discussions, contribute, and criticize local and regional development programs and strategies in Vietnam.

The main approach of the course is the use of case studies, primarily from the Fulbright Economics Curriculum / Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management and Harvard Business School case studies library. Before each session, students need to read and carefully prepare the case study because the weight of the class participation is very high. At the end of the course, students will perform a group project with the main task of assessing the competitiveness of an organization or organization and making recommendations for that unit or organization.
