It will examine how managers can utilize the tools of economics, forecasting, accounting/finance, and decision theory to aid in these critical decisions. The course will consider how differences and changes in the internal operating conditions and in the external political-economic environment can affect a manager's resource allocation decisions. Topics include incremental analysis, short- and long-run decision-making and financial analysis.
