This course will introduce you to a range of economic and change principles, which on application to everyday real life scenarios will help you gain insights to prepare for and drive organisational change. You will be able to use the tools of economics to understand why people do what they do - tools like supply and demand will help explain the behaviour of people, firms, governments, countries and markets. The course will also focus on externalities relating to geopolitics, markets, technologies with a view to assessing how (successful) businesses /organisations deal with risk, uncertainty and shocks.
