Managerial Economics (3)
Micro- and macroeconomic analysis topics utilized in
subsequent M.B.A. courses. Supply, demand, and market equilibrium; elasticity,
revenue, and marginal revenue; fixed, variable, average, and marginal cost;
perfect competition, monopoly, and oligopoly; employment, inflation, monetary

Managerial Skills (3)
This course will provide opportunities to strengthen managerial
skills in three core areas: personal, interpersonal, and group. Students will
forge relationships classwide and within their assigned learning teams, and
will gain a greater sense of their individual strengths and opportunities for
personal development. The hallmark of this course is experiential learning.
Expect each session to be highly interactive and participative, involving a
combination of lectures, videos, individual and team projects, discussions, and
hands-on activities. We recommend that this course be taken during the first
year in the program.
Quantitative Skills (3)
This course provides the mathematical and statistical foundation that will help students in understanding topics presented in courses
offered by different functional areas such as finance, accounting, marketing, and management. Topics covered include descriptive statistics, probability, discrete and continuous random variables, sampling, confidence intervals,
hypothesis testing, and linear regression analysis. The course also includes the use of statistical software programs.
