Rome Business Game

The Rome Business Game is the simulation dedicated to the world of business, international markets, marketing, and business management.

300 participants from around the world will compete against each for an opportunity within the world of international business.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet business and marketing experts, acting as judges, as they propose innovative solutions/products to challenges presented by those same experts. They will also be developing and refining a set of soft skills which are often overlooked yet essential for career success: learning the techniques for proper business management, analysis and insight of business dynamics, team working, and practical problem solving.

The Business Game was born in the fifties with the dual purpose of, on the one hand, providing students interested in working within companies a practice-oriented alternative to a traditional, solely theoretical education and, on the other hand, to test the capacity of students and interns in an environment which is as realistic as possible.

Therefore, it is both a game in which teams compete in order to achieve a common, economic objective, and, simultaneously, a model that simulates the realities of business and the market which it addresses.

The Rome Business Game allows participants to interact in a truly multicultural environment, working in English and developing managerial and technical skills which are extremely important in todays competitive international job market. Managers of our partner companies will present practical business cases to the participants who, divided into teams, have to propose a project (launch of a new product, innovative marketing campaign, practical solution(s) to a company-wide problems, etc.). The winning team has the possibility of an interview with a human resources manager of one of our partner companies or even an internship.

Participants are divided into two categories:

The Junior category is open to undergrad/Bachelor students and those in the first year of their Master s while the Expert category is for those about to graduate or that have already graduated.

The RomeBG is strongly recommended for students of: economics, business administration, management engineering, computer engineering, marketing, polytechnic universities.

The selected participants are divided into teams who will compete against each other to present the best idea. Each day of the 4-day long Festival will be dedicated to one of our partner companies and to their specific challenge. The teams will work on the case study and, at the end of the day, present their project to our panel of judges (representatives of the company) who will then declare the winner.

It is a unique opportunity for the participants as they work in close contact with experts and representatives from major international companies, to get noticed, and to win an interview with the head of Human Resources from one of our partner companies.

What Are the Best International Bond Markets? #incorporate #a #business

What Are the Best International Bond Markets?

What Are the Best International Bond Markets?

With low interest rates in the U.S. and outright negative rates in some overseas markets, the bond market probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind when investors are looking for yield.

But experts are pointing to some niches of the international bond arena that are yielding well above what can be had domestically, albeit with more risk.

Both high-quality and lower-quality bonds have been performing well in terms of price. High-quality developed market bonds have rallied with demand from risk-averse investors, such as those worried about Britain voting to leave the European Union .

But of course as bond prices rise, their yields decline. So, needing to make money, investors have also been turning to lower-quality emerging market bonds. That also drives their price up, but these bonds simply yield more because they are riskier.

It can be tempting to stay within the U.S. in terms of bonds, says Richard Lawrence, senior vice president of portfolio management at Brandywine Global Investment Management, which is a subadvisor for the Legg Mason BW Global Opportunities Bond Fund (ticker: GOBIX ). But that would be eschewing higher yields in emerging markets and some developed world bonds.

“You have to look beyond the headlines,” he says.

Emerging markets can be a good place to look for yield, but that’s because they are associated with certain risks, says Eric Stein, co-director of global income at Eaton Vance Management, which has the Global Macro Absolute Return Fund (EIGMX ), the Emerging Markets Local Income Fund (EEIAX ) and the Emerging Markets Debt Opportunities Fund (EIDOX ). The three main risks for foreign bonds are currency, interest rates and default, he says.

International bonds also move in step with the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasurys. If the Fed raises rates, that would cause bond yields elsewhere to rise, meaning their value would fall in the short term. This would only create a headwind for international bonds if the Fed raises rates more than expected and Treasurys sell off, Stein says.

If U.S. rates rise more quickly than expected, this could strengthen the U.S. dollar and cause some emerging market currencies to weaken.

Demand from China is also a risk as many emerging market countries are commodities producers and China is a large consumer, he says. A sell off in the Chinese currency can also send shockwaves through global risk markets, he says.

Oil prices are also a risk, since many emerging market countries are oil exporters, he says.

With the top five global bond issuers – the U.S. France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan – all yielding low or negative rates, emerging market countries are “last bastions of yield,” says Meb Faber, a co-founder and chief investment officer of Cambria Investment Management.

Rising interest rates in the U.S. would lead to higher rates elsewhere. So in the short term, that would cause international bond prices to decline and their yield to go up, Faber says.

Whether international bonds will face a strong headwind as the Fed raises rates depends on how the market reacts to the pace of the hikes, Lawrence says.

A strong dollar acts as a headwind for investors in international bonds unless they hedge that currency exposure, he says, but this year, declines in the U.S. dollar have made it more sensible to buy securities denominated in other currencies.

Stein thinks the Fed will raise rates a little more than expected over the next two years, providing a slight headwind to some emerging market currencies.

For those looking for yield, Lawrence points to Brazil, where the 10-year bond is yielding around 12 percent. He also likes Mexico because of its correlation with the slowly improving U.S. economy and its Treasury market but much higher yield. South Africa is also attractive, with its 10-year bonds yielding about 9 percent and a slowly improving fiscal picture.

Both Lawrence and Stein point to Indonesia because of its reform agenda.

They also cite New Zealand as a niche of the developed world economies where investors can get higher yields without taking a lot of credit risk. However, Stein is bearish on the New Zealand dollar.

Dr Margaret Harris
Senior Scientific Writer, World Health Organization (WHO)

I returned to the university to further my expertise in the disciplines of health risk communications, advocacy and health promotion. The diversity of studying the Masters of International Public Health made it a highly stimulating and fulfilling year for me. I learned so much from my fellow students, and lessons I continue to find useful in my current work.”

Amy Simpson

I enjoyed studying with fellow international students, the brightest among their professional fields from all over the world.

Tuberculosis Researcher, Woolcock Institute

“When I finished the Master of International Public Health, I moved to Vietnam and worked on a collaborative project between the University of Sydney and the National Tuberculosis Program to enhance detection of tuberculosis.

One of the strengths of the course is the diversity of the students. There are people from health and non-health backgrounds, and they brought who whole range of different perspectives to our discussions.
