An understanding of economics is important for any advanced management degree.

The module addresses three main areas: the macroeconomic context for business, economic concepts underpinning competitive strategies, and economic concepts that relate to the internal functioning of organizations. It provides an important grounding for managers wishing to do further study in Economics as well as modules addressing issues of strategy offered by other business-orientated disciplines.
