This week (Monday 24 to Friday 28) sees the launch of an exclusive series of four Masterclasses in Madrid, conducted by academics from Europe's leading social science institution, the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Enterprise LSE has designed the LSE Masterclass in Globalisation seminar series for the Fundacion Caja Madrid. Up to 100 participants from throughout Spain have been selected by the Fundacion to represent a cross-section of Spain's potential intellectual, political and business leaders.

For the first seminar, the theme is the Globalisation of Financial Markets and Economic Policy .

The second seminar on Political and Economic Consequences of Globalisation in the European Union takes place in February. The third seminar in March focuses on Global Consequences of Information Technology and the final seminar in April considers Reform of theWelfare State in the Global Age .

Enterprise LSE has received considerable support to establish this series from the British Embassy in Madrid, and the Madrid-based educational company ZEIA.
