Housed in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, the Emerging Markets Program brings together students and educators across the Cornell Community to engage in scholarship and outreach on topics relevant to economic development in emerging economies. The program was founded in 2001 by Dyson School Professor Ralph D. Christy.
Mission and Goals:
The mission of the EMP is to be a leading international program in emerging markets research and education by bringing together practitioners and academics. Its focal activities are research and teaching, with the following goals:
Research: To generate critical information that can improve private strategies in emerging markets and inform public policy makers of the requirements for and design of an enabling environment that supports competitiveness. In short, the EMP supports the development of emerging economies by simultaneously strengthening private strategies and public policies.
Teaching: To disseminate knowledge and research findings about emerging market economies and to provide individuals with the skills needed to compete effectively in a global marketplace.
