5 credits

In this course, students examine analytical frameworks and empirical data to gain an understanding of the increasingly dynamic world economy. They engage in assignments that focus on economic analyses that are particularly important to business decision makers in a global economy and the economic conditions that impact firms' decisions about capital allocation, pricing, and employment. Students also share perspectives and delve deeper into course content through discussions on a range of topics, including historical roots of international economics, neoclassical trade theory, tools that restrict or alter trade between countries, and U.S. trade policy history, among others.
