General Information

Overview

This unit encompasses a broad ranging introduction to economic theory and analysis as well as a study of some applications of economics to economic systems and to enterprises. You will be required to study microeconomics (how individual businesses and sectors operate) and macroeconomics (how an economy works as a whole). You will also be required to gain some understanding of why institutions are very important in an economy, and how internal and international trade creates economic wealth. Key goals in the unit will be to raise awareness of the importance of economic systems, introduction to the different fields of economic theory that are relevant to business, and develop some analytical skills. If you have successfully completed the unit ECON20023 you should not enrol in this unit.
