The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of the 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,” then, we are referring to the marketplace or system in which these choices interact with one another.  In this course, we will learn how and why these decisions are made and how they affect one another in the economy. Each of the following units has been designed as a building block, where the concepts you learn in one unit will enable you to understand the material you discover in the next.  By the end of this course, you will have a strong grasp on the major issues that face microeconomists, including consumer and p…

Economics is traditionally divided into two parts: microeconomics and macroeconomics.  The purpose of this course is to provide you with a fundamental understanding of the principles of macroeconomics.  Macroeconomists study how a country’s economy works and try to determine the best choices to improve the overall wellbeing of a nation.  Typical topics include inflation (the overall level of prices), employment, fiscal policy (government taxing and spending), and money and banking (interest rates and lending policies).  Individuals and firms need to consider how macroeconomic events will affect their own prosperity.  To better define macroeconomics, consider its distinction from microeconomics.  Imagine you are attempting to figure out how the price of a certain good (say, bread) has been determined.  Microeconomics would focus on how the supply of and the demand for bread determine its prices.  It would examine factors like the input prices and the consumer's demand in order to determine the curren…

####**Course Summary** Over the last 10 to 15 years, the inception of new products and services has steered corporations to manage this development in a much more efficient manner in order to meet customer demand. This introspection within the business community was comprised of two elements: 1.) Can one identify the deficiencies in previous workings in order to overcome the shortcomings? 2.) What is the employee skillset required in order to ensure proper deployment of these new customer needs? The inception of the Business Analysis profession was a result of this changed situation as well as an overall classification of those competencies that were already being practiced in the enterprise. This course takes a look at the competencies required of a Business Analysis. In addition, you will be exposed to the following elements tied to the subject matter: - The typical business analysis path, starting with a problem statement, the requirements tied to the need to be addressed and a definition of the most robust solution possible. - The tie between the enterprise strategy and business analysis activities. - The relationship between needs and current processes - Document analysis and the importance of historical data - The means by which elicitation is performed - Solutions, business cases and decisions - Business Analysis and quality - System thinking and estimations This course is intended to give you a general overview of what this discipline entails and can act as a springboard into more detailed study at a future date. ####**What do I learn?** According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a 19% job growth rate for Business Analysts is expected till 2022, and the outlook for the rest of the world should be higher still. - What are the underlying competencies of a Business Analyst? - The importance of stakeholder management within the business analysis domain. - Where within the enterprise can a business analyst be found? - In which sectors are business analyst competencies being practiced? - What is the importance of processes within the business analysis domain? - Why business transformation starts with an understanding of the current processes deployed within an organization. - What are some of the tools and techniques used to create, evaluate, modify and analyze processes? - What are organizational process assets and enterprise environmental factors? - What tools and techniques are used to create and analyze enterprise artifacts? - What is elicitation, and what techniques does a BA have at her disposal? - The importance of traceability within an organization. - What is the relationship between solutions and risks? - What elements should one consider when evaluating numerous solution possibilities? - What is the cost of quality? - Why is quality management important to a Business Analyst? - What quality management tools and techniques can a Business Analyst use? - What is the Deming Cycle? - How are the 7 Basic Quality Tools deployed? - What means of estimation does a BA have at her disposal? - Business Analysis, data and forecasting. - What is the theory of constraints? - Game theory, crowdsourcing and the Business Analyst. ####**What do I need to know?** No prior knowledge is required. ####**Course Structure** The **first week**, we look at what makes a Business Analyst; what are the underlying competencies, how a BA fits in the organization, the concept of stakeholders and organizational readiness, and lastly in which sectors those BA competencies can be found. In **week #2**, we look at process analysis; the importance of process documentation, the relationship between processes and business transformation, process diagramming and process modeling. **Week 3** takes us to document analysis. We look at Organizational Process Assets and Enterprise Environmental Factors, Impact Analysis, business rules, traceability and other elements that prepare you to move on in your BA path. Our **fourth week** takes us to the world of requirements gathering; what elicitation is, the different ways of performing the exercise and what steps need to be followed within requirements analysis. So that’s week 4, requirements gathering. **Week # 5** concerns all things tied to solutions; the relationship between a problem statement and a solution, the evaluation of multiple solutions, and how we pick the best one. Our **sixth week** views the subject of quality management. What cost does quality have? What are the seven basic quality tools and of course what this all has to do with Business Analysis? Our **last week** takes us into the realm of system thinking and estimation. How important is probability within our BA activities? What is the theory of constraints? We will perform a walkthrough on subject such as crowdsourcing and game theory, and that pretty much covers our last week. ####**Workload** Approximately 4 hours per week for watching lecture videos and completing quizzes and homework assignments.

Course Summary

Due to a fast-changing environment in our increasingly globalised world, higher insecurity and higher competition increases the pressure placed on companies. Furthermore, the quality of the information necessary for managers and executives to perform is increasingly both important and complex.

Based on this backdrop, this course outlines and structures the basic challenges and assumptions for companies in the field of Controlling. We will also outline and analyse the current status of Controlling. After laying this foundation, together we will deduce the "Objectification-orientated Controlling approach".

What will I learn?

The students will learn the basic building blocks and the elements of a Controlling system as well as dive deep into the "Objectification-orientated Controlling approach" .
With this knowledge, the participants will understand the need for objectified information, as well as the appropriate quality and quantity, in order to inform proper decision making as a baseline for successful company management.

Prior Knowledge

No prior knowledge necessary.

Course Syllabus

Chapter 1: Basic Assumptions

Chapter 2: Value Orientation

Chapter 3: Objectification

Chapter 4: Controlling Status Analysis

The unifying theme of this course is best captured by the title of our main reference book: "Recursive Methods in Economic Dynamics". We start by covering deterministic and stochastic dynamic optimization using dynamic programming analysis. We then study the properties of the resulting dynamic systems. Finally, we will go over a recursive method for repeated games that has proven useful in contract theory and macroeconomics. We shall stress applications and examples of all these techniques throughout the course.

This course focuses on dynamic optimization methods, both in discrete and in continuous time. We approach these problems from a dynamic programming and optimal control perspective. We also study the dynamic systems that come from the solutions to these problems. The course will illustrate how these techniques are useful in various applications, drawing on many economic examples. However, the focus will remain on gaining a general command of the tools so that they can be applied later in other classes.

Economics is traditionally divided into two parts: microeconomics and macroeconomics. The main purpose of this course is to introduce you to the principles of macroeconomics. Macroeconomics is the study of how a country’s economy works while trying to discern among good, better, and best choices for improving and/or maintaining a nation’s standard of living and level of economic and societal well-being. Historical and contemporary perspectives on the roles and policies of government are part of the mix of interpretations and alternatives that surround questions of who or what gains and loses the most or least within a relatively small set of key interdependent players. In the broadest view, that set consists of households, consumers, savers, firm owners, investors, agency and elected officials, and global trading partners in which some wear many hats and face price considerations at two levels. Consider one distinction between macroeconomics and microeconomics though prices are taken into account in bot…

This course is designed to introduce you to the study of Calculus.  You will learn concrete applications of how calculus is used and, more importantly, why it works.  Calculus is not a new discipline; it has been around since the days of Archimedes.  However, Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz, two 17th-century European mathematicians concurrently working on the same intellectual discovery hundreds of miles apart, were responsible for developing the field as we know it today.  This brings us to our first question, what is today's Calculus?  In its simplest terms, calculus is the study of functions, rates of change, and continuity.  While you may have cultivated a basic understanding of functions in previous math courses, in this course you will come to a more advanced understanding of their complexity, learning to take a closer look at their behaviors and nuances. In this course, we will address three major topics: limits, derivatives, and integrals, as well as study their respective foundations and a…
