ECON 832 Economics: Theory and Research

This course is designed to explore the theory, research, and practice in the field of economics strategy and game theories. Students are expected to develop an entrepreneurial approach to discussing theoretical topics, research findings, practical applications, and controversial issues as they relate to economics. Also, students will develop the ability to integrate theories from the academic level into relevant proscriptive analysis and theoretical arguments. As such, discussions and presentations concerned with solving selected problems of the firm such as product pricing, product mix, costs and managerial decisions, demand forecasting, game theories, market elasticities, and analysis will be examined. However, students will be challenged to see beyond the graphs, formulas, and calculations of the economics discipline but to think about how the application of these tools affect our relationship with God and society.
