EFB331 Intermediate Microeconomics

This unit explores the economic analysis of and the interplay between the decisions and actions of consumers, firms and governments in modern economies.  The theoretical and empirical content of this unit provides a basis for understanding these decisions and actions with a focus on applying microeconomic theories to real world problems. Students will develop the ability to understand and apply microeconomic concepts to a range of contemporary economic issues and problems at an intermediate level.  Further, the unit provides a useful appreciation of the range of issues to which economics may usefully be applied to improve managerial decision-making and the formulation of public policy to improve the welfare of the community. The unit prepares students for higher studies in economics and develops students' ability to apply microeconomic knowledge and critical thinking skills to economic problems in real world contexts.
