Banco Sabadell Chair of Emerging Markets

Holder: Pedro Videla

Emerging economies account for half the world’s GDP and are home to 85% of the planet’s population, shares that are steadily increasing. A thorough understanding of emerging economies is essential to succeeding in the business and financial worlds. This is the goal of the Banco Sabadell Chair of Emerging Markets.

The Chair develops specific courses as part of IESE’s Executive Education programs. Its activities also include working sessions for Banco Sabadell staff and other bank guests and clients, continuous training sessions, and conferences and seminars on emerging economies.


  • Help the spread of information and knowledge on emerging countries.
  • Offer training in this field of study.
