Business Economics - BUSI97244
The purpose of this module is:
(a) To introduce economic concepts of practical value in business life.
Elementary economic concepts have become an increasing part of everyday business life - notions such as marginal costs, sunk costs, elasticities. These concepts will be fully explained and their usefulness illustrated.
(b) To provide an internally consistent conceptual framework for thinking about the interaction between the firm and the market.
Management is about decisions. Human decision making may not always be rational, but when analysing management problems we need to think about them logically. The hallmark of economic modelling is its emphasis on internal consistency. Logical models can then be adjusted to predict the consequences of specific business decisions. This process is valuable in evaluating both one’s own plans and the plans of others.
