Program Overview

Policymakers struggle to generate shared prosperity, as economic growth remains elusive or non-inclusive for too many. Existing approaches of one-size-fits-all development prove unable to meet their economic goals. Pathways to prosperity are continuously evolving. Strategies for Inclusive Growth offers a redesign of economic policy that centers on context-specific approaches to diagnose the economic challenge and to build the capability to implement change.

Strategies for Inclusive Growth is a one-week, on-campus executive education program that rethinks the practice of economic policy, from design to implementation. Led by Professor Ricardo Hausmann and Professor Matt Andrews, the program places inclusion at the heart of economic policy to provide powerful tools to diagnose the root causes of economic inclusion. The program will equip you with new frameworks to design strategies that address constraints and mobilize teams required to achieve shared prosperity.


In Strategies for Inclusive Growth, you will join leading Harvard experts and peers from around the world to lead the change process to create winning strategies for inclusive growth in your context. The program will equip you with the framework, tools, and networks to drive inclusion-driven economic policy to advance shared prosperity and how to apply it to your own economic growth challenge. By the end of the program, you will better understand how to lead the change process of implementing a new growth and inclusion strategy.


Faculty chairs Ricardo Hausmann and Matt Andrews designed Strategies for Inclusive Growth specifically to help you:

  • Learn breakthrough insights into the nature of economic growth and inclusion.
  • Identify your own local opportunities to drive inclusive economic growth.
