Programa Especializado - Managerial Economics and Business Analysis

Business Tools for Successful Execution. Apply economic theory and analytical tools to make effective business decisions.

Sobre este Programa Especializado

In order to effectively manage and operate a business, managers and leaders need to understand the market characteristics and economic environment they operate in. In this Specialization, you will build a solid understanding of the operation of markets and the macro-economic environment with real-world examples. You will be able to identify firm and country-level economic factors that impact business decisions, develop an analytical framework using statistical tools, and apply economic theory and data in the analysis of business environment and trends to make effective business decisions. The capstone project involves an in-depth analysis of an actual business situation in which you will examine the global economic environment of a business. The final project will be a business plan that uses statistical tools and economic theory to create a comprehensive analysis of the microeconomic and macroeconomic environment in which the focal company operates. This Specialization is part of the University of Illinois Masters of Business Administration degree program, the iMBA.
