Content

The unit Economics for Managers (Tour) is designed to provide current and future managers with sufficient economic understanding and analytical tools (including statistical tools) to effectively assist them in decision making in their workplace. These decisions relate to how organisations can best use scarce resources against the backdrop of the economic environment in which Australian and Chinese firms operate. This requires an understanding of introductory theory in both microeconomics, macro¬economics and statistics.

In addition to theory, the assessment regime requires concepts and principles to be applied to the real world.
