Course Overview

Decision-making is the bedrock of management. Selecting the most optimal course of action that is in the best interest of the company, however, can be complex and often high-stakes. Managerial economics applies economic theory to “problems of choice” and can help improve decisions by factoring micro- and macroeconomic considerations in the analysis of the firm, market, consumers and competitors. This course introduces students to the principles of managerial economics, macroeconomics and economic fundamentals. Students will learn to utilise tools and techniques of economic analysis to build a business strategy and will explore concepts of supply, demand, efficiency, price and consumer income elasticity and market intervention. Further, they will understand the impact of the government’s economic policy on job markets, aggregate demand, price stability and economic growth. 

After completion of this course, students will be able to use managerial economic analytical frameworks to assess a firm’s actual and potential position to maximise its growth and profitability.
