Microeconomics

Module code: EC7186

Microeconomics is the branch of economics concerned with large-scale or general economic factors, such as interest rates and national productivity.

During this module, you’ll gain a solid grounding in the issues encountered in modern microeconomics. You'll learn about the concept of uncertainty and how that affects microeconomic decisions. Additionally, you’ll learn the tools and techniques used by micro-economists, such as general equilibrium analysis. You’ll also explore the combination of economic and mathematical analysis to analyse phenomena relevant to microeconomic behaviour and their implications.
