Thomas Carlyle, a 19th century Scottish writer and philosopher described economics as “the dismal science” (dreary and distressing). It’s no wonder so many of us cringe when we hear the term! This course will provide a vastly different perspective. Economics should be viewed and taught from a more positive, general point of view so that participants can gain an appreciation for and understanding of such an important topic.

Join this interactive, instructor-led session during which you’ll learn a thorough definition of economics including the distinction between macro and micro economics. We’ll also focus on how the economy is measured using Gross Domestic Product or GDP and review the effects of imports and exports on an economy.

Embrace economics and learn how it can help you improve your business acumen competency. Remember, the class has been approved for 1 SHRM instructor-led recertification credit and 1 HRCI business recertification credit.
