What is the Federal Reserve doing and why? What policies is the government pursuing and why? How do growth, inflation, and employment behave in national economies and what do the numbers actually tell us? What is meant by austerity policies? Do they make any sense? Can I make an informed contribution to the economic discussion? How does what happens in the wider economy affect my life and job? Being an articulate and confident manager involves being able to make sense of the economic headlines. In this module, we break open the economic engine and look at its parts. We study relationships and trends. We discuss the impact of economic developments and trends on our personal lives and careers. Moreover, we bring different national perspectives to this discussion.

BM Classes are relevant nowadays and provide irreplaceable knolwedge which can be used in today's business, economic, financial sphere and employees relations. Since studying BM, I discovered in myself an entrepreneurial talent, learned how to cooperate and become a team player. This course also provided an opportunity to receive practical knowledge which is so important in everyday life. For example, the invitation of an interview or creative team work made me feel comfortable in stressful situations. That's why BM course is worth studying.
