Undergraduate Teaching Assistant: Jiaqi Zhou Office: MW 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. Krannert 469 email@example.com Administrative Assistant: Bree Miller firstname.lastname@example.org In this class we review concepts from intermediate microeconomic theory that managers can use to become more effective decision makers. As we review the economic tools managers use in their decision making process (profit maximization, cost minimization, pricing strategies, etc.), you will continue to grow in the strategic thinking and decision making and decisiveness competencies of Launching Business Leaders (http://www.krannert.purdue.edu/launching-business-leaders/). Moreover, as we work examples, we’ll periodically challenge ourselves to think about trustworthiness and integrity in the decision making process.

You should check in to verify your grades on examinations. If there is an error, contact my administrative assistant Bree Miller through e-mail as soon as possible.
