  • Overview

    The aim of this module is to introduce students to the core microeconomic principles and how this can be used in a business environment to help decision making and behaviour. The module explains how markets operate and focuses on both the customer and firm side of markets. Models of consumer demand are explained as well as how firms make price and output decisions under perfect and imperfect competition. The role and rationale of government intervention into markets is also explored. No assumption is made that students have previously studied economics.
