The Basic Economic Development Course Begins Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Tuesday March 8, 2016, is the first day of the Basic Economic Development Course!

In 1967, Georgia Tech offered the first Basic Economic Development Course in the country and continues today to provide innovative education in both fundamentals and new concepts in economic development. In 2016, our Basic Economic Development Course will celebrate 49 years of being one of the first steps in the career of more than 3,000 economic developers.
Join us this year as we welcome Vicki Horton, a nationally-recognized site selection consultant who will kick-off the course, centered around Disruptive Technologies and their impact on economic development. Companies like Amazon, Uber, Zifty, Spotify, and Airbnb have revolutionized the way companies and communities do business. Over the duration of the course, we’ll discuss the impact that Disruptive Technologies hold for regional economies, as well as explore core economic development topics and current trends that are transforming the economic development profession and the businesses and communities you support.
