DESCRIPTION

Principles of Economics 1 is a compulsory unit in the Bachelor of Economics (BEc) and Bachelor of Business (BBus) degrees. It is also available as a student elective in a wide range of other programs throughout the University of Tasmania.

Principles of Economics 1 is the first in a sequence of two foundation level economics units offered by the School of Economics and Finance. Principles of Economics 1 enables students to improve decision making in all domains of their lives, to better understand aspects of the microeconomic policy environment in which they operate and to apply key economic concepts that help managers form successful competitive strategies and run more profitable firms. Taken together with BEA121 Principles of Economics 2, Principles of Economics 1 provides students with a comprehensive introduction to economic theory and policy, and forms a strong foundation for students planning to continue their study of economics.
