MOC Affiliate Network

We have recently become members of the MOC Affiliate network, which will enable:

• Joint research initiatives with Harvard
• Future engagement in content-related research
• Leadership and participation in cluster and competitiveness initiatives
• Hosting faculty members from other affiliate institutions and Harvard to co-teach specific classes
• Offering the MOC Harvard-created course to our students

About the Course: Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC)

In 2002, the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) course was created by Professor Michael Porter and colleagues at the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness. The course was designed for students at Harvard as well as a platform for educational institutions and locally trained professors teach the course around the world. The MOC course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, microeconomic perspective.

About the network:

The MOC Affiliate Network launched in 2002 and is currently comprised of a group of more than 100 educational institutions from 63 countries around the world that teach the MOC curriculum and collaborate in the area of competitiveness. Leveraging the network structure, faculty now collaborate on teaching, developing cases, and researching as ways to expand the body of knowledge and become leaders on competitiveness in their regions.
