Econ/Free Enterprise

Are you moaning and feeling sorry for students who have to study economics? If so, you probably took an economics course similar to the ones I was in: lots of graphing and math. Not to worry. 

Students who study economics in Business Administration courses never get to graphs. Their focus is on understanding such business concepts as profit, risk, and competition. We want students to leave our programs understanding that the actions businesses take in response to changes occurring in the business environment hinge on economic decision-making. They'll examine opportunity costs, trade-offs, incentives and other economic concepts that enhance the effectiveness of the decision-making process. Our goal is to help students acquire a practical understanding of economic activities and decision-making which occur in a free enterprise, or market, economy.
