The Managerial Economics and Business Analysis Specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Illinois 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.
What you will learn
- Analyze macroeconomic and microeconomic variables at the firm and country levels.
- Assess market characteristics and firm level behaviors as frameworks for making business decisions.
- Explore asymmetries and externalities as forms of market failure and as best practices for equilibrium outcomes within market structures.
