Course Overview

The Economics Professional program presents basic concepts necessary to an informed understanding of the economy. Starting with individual consumer behavior and corporate actions, the program moves on to explain both micro- and macroeconomics and the interplay between these 2 perspectives in terms of output, unemployment, inflation, productivity and growth. The effects at the micro level are different to those at the macro level, but sometimes they can also run in parallel and students will study the different ways in which all aspects of the economy are affected.

This extensive program Introduction assumes students are new to the study of economics outlining economic theory and moving through analysis of supply and demand, government action, competitive markets and different types of economic markets that present unique challenges. This program encompasses economic principles (both microeconomic and macroeconomic) and problems. The purpose of the program is for students to develop a logical, conceptual, and analytical understanding of economic principles and to deal with problems associated with the allocation of resources, decisions made by consumers, production by firms, and pricing in various market conditions, government actions in markets, measuring aggregate output, economic growth, employment and unemployment, money and banking, and fiscal and monetary policies intended to achieve economic goals.
