ECON101: Principles of Microeconomics

Principles of Microeconomics is one of the two principles courses in the discipline of economics. Microeconomics is the study of the behavior of individual decision makers in the economic system, particularly households and business firms. It contrasts with macroeconomics, which is the study of the behavior of the economic system as a whole. 

Successful study of economics requires an ability to engage in abstract thinking. The course will focus on the development of economic models used to analyze the behavior of decision-making units and will apply these models to real-world examples.
