GFM provides MBA students with macro-finance training by examining the underlying economic drivers of bond, currency, equity, and commodity marketsSecond Year Elective: Advanced Global Financial Markets (AdvGFM) AdvGFM is an intensive student-led capstone course on some of the biggest issues in international finance. Recent topics include unintended consequences of Federal Reserve policy, bubbles lean or clean, Bitcoin and what it means to be a currency, shadow banking, and deep dives into various countries.Second Year Elective: Transforming Societies Transforming Societies explores the role of managers, intrapreneurs, and entrepreneurs in effecting innovations that promote human development and transform societies across the world. The course grew out of the old year-long SY Practicum "Markets in Human Hope," which was similar but with a distinct focus on entrepreneurs. Some MHH projects included cell phone banking in Haiti and underserved areas of the US; peer-to-peer lending focused on consolidating and refinancing consumer and small business debt; an entrepreneurial approach to providing housing to low income households in West Virginia; a microfinance fund; fostering entrepreneurship in Tibet; and work on the housing finance sector in Nigeria.Advancing knowledge through research that shapes business, Darden professors are recognized thought leaders in their fields. They are not only master case method teachers, they also author many of the cases used in Darden classrooms and around the world.Francis E. Warnock's cases are available in the Darden Business Publishing website.Course MaterialsCase studies that are updated each year for the GFM courseFand, Jeremy, and Francis E. Warnock, 2014.
