The module “Economic Areas of the World” is part of the following Online Higher Education Programs taught by EENI Global Business School:

  1. Professional Master of Science (MSc) in International Business (eLearning)
  2. Master of Science in International Economic Relations and Regional Integration

The main objective of this module of the Online Master / Doctorate in International Business (MIB) taught by EENI is to know the state of the World: trade blocs, trends in the regional economic integration, the emerging countries (BRICS), or the African continent emergence.

EENI Global Business School has developed a unique analysis methodology of the State of the World based on the concept of “Civilisations, Religions, and Regional Economic Integration.” Despite the globalisation phenomenon, business also tends to the regionalisation.

Analysing the role of the civilisations - religions in a globalised world; we can identify eight major economic-religious areas, each area, can be formed by one or more distinct economic areas.

Civilisations, Religions, Economic Integration (Doctorate)

1- Western-Christian Civilisation.

Christianity (Catholicism and Protestantism) is the largest religion. In the Western Civilisation, we can identify three different economic areas:

  1. American Economic Area, divided in the North American Economic Area (with the United States as the Central State), the Latin American Economic Area (Brazil -BRICS country- as the Central State) and the Caribbean Economic Area
  2. European Economic Area, with Germany as the Central State
  3. Oceania

2- Islamic Civilisation.

Islam (Sunni and Shiite) is the largest religion. In the Islamic Civilisation, we can identify five different economic areas.

  1. Arab, with Saudi Arabia as the Central State
  2. Central Eurasian. Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan are competing to be the central state
  3. Malay, formed by the ASEAN Muslim Countries
  4. Maghrebian (shared with the African Civilisation)
  5. African (belonging to the African Civilisation)

3- African Civilisation.

Islam and Christianity (besides African Traditional Religions) are the main religions in Africa. Nigeria and/or South Africa (a BRICS country) are the Central States. In the African Civilisation, we can identify five different economic areas:

  1. West African
  2. Central African
  3. Southern African
  4. East African
  5. Maghrebian (Islamic Civilisation)

4- Economic Area of the Hindu Civilisation.

Hinduism is the largest religion; India is the central state and a BRICS country.

5- Economic Area of the Sinic Civilisation.

Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism are the main religions. China (a BRICS country) is the Central State. The area of ​​influence of this civilisation includes Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore.

6- Economic Area of the Buddhist Civilisation, where Buddhism (Mahayana, Theravada) is the main religion. This economic area consists of Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. In some countries, it coincides with the Sinic Civilisation.

7- Economic Area of the ​Orthodox Civilisation, where Orthodox Christianity is the main religion. Russia (a BRICS country) is the Central State. This economic area includes Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, or Serbia.

8- Japanese Civilisation. Japan is the only country of this civilisation.

For each of these eighteen economic areas; we will analyse:

  1. Characteristics of each economic area
  2. Economic Profile of the largest countries
  3. Economic integration processes
  4. Principles, ethical basis and its relationship with business of each religion
  5. Regional economic organisations
  6. Businesspeople Profiles
  7. Interactions with the other economic areas (trade agreements)

It is important to note that due to the introductory character of this module, for each of these included topics  organisations, religions, Businesspeople, Free Trade Agreements...) we will introduce only a summary of each of them, the in-depth analysis of each of them is done in other master and doctoral programs.

For example, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) is an agreement between three civilisations - Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic; the summary of the SAARC is approximately 3 pages, while the detailed analysis is 56 pages.

This new approach to study the economic relations between the civilisations will help the students to understand better the state of the World.
