Economic Theory

To understand how economic factors impact your organization, start with this careful look at fundamental microeconomic and macroeconomic theory. Learn key aspects of economics, such as how people make decisions, interact with and interpret the economic world around them.

Specific topics include: consumer behaviour, production and costs, market structure, firm behaviour and government policies, price level and aggregate output.

You will become familiar with the forces that determine economic growth, the role of money, and the role of government in managing the economy through policies that impact individuals and firms.
