Quantitative Economics - ECN 308

As such, the course consolidates the mathematical techniques previously acquired by the students whilst explicitly highlighting their relevance to economic analysis. The main topics covered fall under three main areas: (i) static/equilibrium analysis, (ii) comparative static analysis, and (iii) optimization. Pre-requisites: ECN 211, ECN 212, MAT 204, STA 210 or STA 207.
