Course: BUS205: Business Law and Ethics

For instance, laws protect customers from being exploited by companies. Laws protect companies from other companies. Laws even protect citizens and corporations from the government. However, law is neither perfect nor all encompassing. Sometimes, societal ethics fill the voids that laws leave behind; other times, usually when societal ethics have been systematically violated by a group of the population, we write laws that are designed to require individuals to live up to certain ethical standards.

Statistics may appear to be a difficult, even scary, subject.

Course: BUS204: Business Statistics

You will find, however, that you are already familiar with the fundamentals of statistics from your life experience. For instance, from your experience, you know that the majority of adult males have the same shoe size, which is very close to the average size, and that there are a few adult males on both sides of the average (small and large size). In statistics, this phenomenon shown from the data pattern is said to be a variable that follows a normal distribution.

This unit will provide an introduction to statistical analysis and how it relates to business. For example, you may be interested in learning about the average price of a 50-inch digital TV by gathering the price for it from 30 different stores. You are probably familiar with the average of a data set.

In many instances, the median and the mean are similar, but this introductory unit will also identify many examples where it is not. Project Management Fundamentals.

Course: BUS103: Introduction to Financial Accounting

If you are learning accounting for the first time, embracing its foundational concepts may be a challenging process. Mastery of accounting primarily rests in your ability to critically think through and synthesize the information as it applies to a given situation. You should approach the learning of accounting the same way you would approach learning a foreign language; It will take time and practice to ensure you remember the concepts.

There are a number of sub-disciplines that fall under the umbrella of "accounting,” but in this course, we will be focused on financial accounting. Course: ECON101: Principles of Microeconomics. Course IntroductionThe purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of the principles of microeconomics.

Course: ECON101: Principles of Microeconomics

At its core, the study of economics deals with the choices and decisions that have to be made in order to manage scarce resources available to us. Microeconomics is the branch of economics that pertains to decisions made at the individual level, i.e., by individual consumers or individual firms after evaluating resources, costs, and tradeoffs. When we talk about the economy, we are referring to the marketplace or system in which these choices interact with one another. Course: ECON202: Intermediate Macroeconomics.

Households are generally defined as the owners of all factors of production in an economy.

Course: ECON202: Intermediate Macroeconomics

Since households provide the factor services of labor, land, capital, and ownership to businesses, they receive payment in the form of wages, rent, interest, and profits. When we talk about "household behavior” in this unit, we mean the decisions that households make in various contexts--such as decisions concerning consumption, savings, investments in education and training. "Firm behavior” is primarily concerned with boosting efficiency and productivity in the production of goods and services. Course: ECON102: Principles of Macroeconomics. Most individuals probably understand the economic concepts of unemployment and inflation. Unemployment reflects the number of people out of work who are actively seeking work, and inflation indicates an overall rise in the price level of most, but not all, goods and services. This unit will give you a deeper look at these concepts, as well as their interrelationship.

Consider first that inflation erodes the purchasing power of the dollar - or any other monetary unit, like the euro, yen, or pound. By distinguishing between nominal income, or the actual amount of money, and real income, or the amount of goods and services it can buy, macroeconomics helps measure the effects that inflation has on an economy and on its constituents' standards of living. Second, consider some details about unemployment. To better understand the interrelationship between unemployment and inflation consider the following unlikely event.

Countries engage in international trade for two basic reasons, each of which contributes to the country's gain from trade.

First, countries trade because they are different from one another. Nations, like individuals, can benefit from their differences by reaching agreements in which each party contributes its strengths and focuses on producing goods in which each is especially efficient. Second, countries trade to achieve economies of scale in production. That is, if each country produces only a limited range of goods, it can produce each of these goods at a larger scale and hence more efficiently than if it tried to produce everything. In the real world, patterns of international trade reflect the interaction of both of these motives. This unit will help you develop the tools you need to understand how differences between countries give rise to trade between them and why this trade is mutually beneficial.
