Global Economics for Managers
Global Economics for Managers will expand students' knowledge of economics in two directions. First, we expand the scope of inquiry to cover the economics of the nation in a global economy. This portion of the course will cover international economics and macroeconomics. We will study the larger economic forces that shape production, trade flows, capital flows, interest rates, exchange rates, and other variables that create the global economic landscape. The second direction is international microeconomics, which will apply the tools of microeconomics and international economics to illustrate how globalization influences performance, strategy, and policy within firms. Our ultimate objective is to help students develop a framework for analyzing both opportunities and risks in a global economic environment.
