Macroeconomics for Managers

  • Macroeconomics for Managers

The core objective of this course is to strengthen students’ understanding of behaviour of the economy as a whole – the macroeconomy – and of its impact on firm performance and strategy. The state of the macroeconomy provides arguably the most important contextual factor that Ivey graduates will face in their future economic lives – as employees, consumers and saver-investors. A nuanced understanding of the workings of economies is therefore not only a necessary component of the practicing manager’s toolkit, but also of the educated citizen’s worldview. Through academic and practitioner readings, data analysis exercises, case studies, and group discussions, students will acquire the knowledge and experience needed to connect macroeconomic analysis to managerial decision-making.
