Course Description

Managerial economics is a branch of economics that applies microeconomic analysis to business decision making. to effectively manage a company, the manager needs to have a thorough understanding of market mechanisms, consumer behavior, production decisions, costs, competition strategies and internal organization. These economic concepts will be gradually developed throughout the course, to show how they can be applied to managerial decisions. The analysis and principles that we learn in this course will serve as building blocks for the understanding of other subjects such as accounting, marketing, corporate finance, and human resource management.
