‘Making Markets Work’ – a two-week training programme: 17th – 29th July 2011, Glasgow, UK
Closing date for applications: 11th May 2011
This unique programme, run by The Springfield Centre, focuses directly on a key challenge facing governments and development agencies: how to make markets function more effectively for business and for poor people. It is clear that markets don’t always offer the opportunity for business and poor people to benefit from and contribute to economic growth. The challenge is to harness the power of markets to bring about large-scale and lasting impact. This course focuses on the strategic and practical implications for organisations as they adopt more market-orientated approaches.
By the end of the programme participants will understand the market development approach and have developed tools to design and manage interventions – and they can select subjects matching their interests to maximise the effectiveness of the training.

Programme fee is £3,100 + VAT @ 20% (Total: £3,720)
