授業の概要 Course Overview


Aligning with the NUCB’s mission statement, this course assists students to foster a "frontier spirit” and enables them to solve economic and business problems in a global society.
The primary focus of this course is microeconomics. Microeconomics studies the behaviour of individuals and firms and the impact of their decisions on the allocation of scarce resources.
This course aims to provide students with the basic understanding of the main concepts of microeconomics and their applications. This course is suitable for students who plan to engage themselves in more microeconomics oriented courses.
