IMD Issue 10: 2013
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Let's talk about investing.

Thinking of investing in yourself? First, find out where you are. IMD's new interactive program finder shows you where you stand on your global leader journey.

Thinking of investing in Twitter? Read why IMD Professor Nuno Fernandes says the IPO isn't worth tweeting about. And be careful before you take a bet on the dollar, as Professor Carlos A. Primo Braga warns of the erosion in the dollar's world position.

Just want to think it all over? Invest a little time in the rest of our newsletter.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
