Economist Education introduces a new standard for e-learning in business.
Drawing on The Economist tradition of reporting and analysis from around the world, we have created an education programme designed to help business managers thrive in a global economy.
More than academic courses, this curriculum provides concise, concentrated and practical lessons. Learn which questions to ask, which numbers to look at, and which factors to consider. Discover how to look objectively at the places where you do business and see a complex, confusing picture in a clear, orderly way.
Developed by professional journalists and management experts, Economist Education combines the prodigious data and analytical resources of The Economist and the Economist Intelligence Unit with the real-world experiences of business leaders. The lessons learned apply regardless of which industry, country or position you work in.

Edited in London since 1843, The Economist is a weekly international news and business publication offering clear reporting, commentary and analysis on world politics, business, finance, science, technology, culture, society, media and the arts.
With a growing global circulation (worldwide: 1,473,939; North America: 833,667) and a reputation for insightful analysis and opinion on every aspect of world events, The Economist is one of the most widely recognised and well-read current affairs publications. The paper has sections about each region of the world, plus science and technology, books and arts, and the weekly obituary, The Economist online, with its 5.9m unique readers, is also accessible through devices including the iPhone and iPad.
Because of its international editorial perspective, it is read by more of the world’s political and business leaders than any other magazine.
