The Diploma in Associative Economics (Dipl. AE) provides a distance-learning possibility, not merely to learn about associative economics in a taught sense, but to demonstrate to oneself and to the world that one has understood what associative economics is about in the area one chooses to focus on.
The Diploma covers a wide range of subjects pertaining to modern economic life – economic history, the evolution and purpose of accounting, the appropriateness of different legal structures, financial management, and so on. Against this background, diplomees choose specific themes and topics, pursued by way of written assignments, presentations and peer group meetings. They are required to complement their work with an in-depth study of a significant economist, well-known concept or pivotal event in economic history but seen from an associative point of view.
The Diploma is conducted through the medium of a portfolio workbook, with the chosen topic related to one of six main research areas: Accounting Reform, Prospects for a World Currency, Youth Financial Literacy, The Role of the Corporation and the Future of Not-for-profits, Financing Education and The Economics of Farming. In effect, therefore, diplomees belong to a worldwide research cohort.
Those interested should read the downloads mentioned below, then send in an initial outline proposal. If agreed to, the next step would be registration and initial payment. The first module is the Colours of Money seminar or its equivalent.
As part of the development of a mainstream presence for associative economics, the Diploma can be taken as a 'shadow' project to a conventional Masters or PhD.
