|Course No. and Title:||
ECON 3013 Economic Theory I: Microeconomics
Three (3) credit hours
Microeconomics has two main purposes. First, it is a foundation course in the study of economics; it provides the essential building blocks for higher level economics and finance courses. Second, microeconomics can be directly applied to help solve the day-to-day decisions of business managers; issues such as pricing, production, advertising, and strategic interaction.
|Prerequisite:||Any Economics course|
Dr. Richard McGaw, Department of Economics, University of New Brunswick
The course materials include a textbook (purchased separately), with lecture notes and testing over the web.
The course is based on 12 chapters from the textbook. Online lecture notes, access to a web site for the textbook, and email contact with the Professor provide students with material equivalent to that delivered in a live class lecture.
