- Learning Outcomes
- This course is designed to help the student 'think like an economist' - by applying economics concepts to make sense of the world: especially the business world, but hopefully also 'the world' in general. As well as an overview of the Macro economy (the environment that businesses and governments operate in), students will learn to apply useful tools and techniques from Multi-Criteria Decision-Making and Conjoint Analysis, Cost-Benefit Analysis, and Game Theory.
