  • Overview

    Microeconomics teaches us the art of using our resources in the most efficient way, be it money, time or career options. As the word ?micro? suggests, we will be dealing with the process of economic decision making at the level of individuals rather than countries. Addressing some of the students? concerns, advanced knowledge of calculus or linear algebra is not a prerequisite for this course. We are going to make use of some mathematical models, but rather on an intuitive level. The main purpose of this course is to learn how people make economic decisions in their everyday life with the emphasis on real world examples.

    There will be one midterm and one final exam (both in English) with equal weights. Attendance enters the final score with the 10% weight. Questions are mostly of multiple-choice or short-answer type.
