Economics provides us with the quantitative and analytic tools to evaluate and predict the market forces and governmental policies that directly affect our lives. At EVC, we offer three courses in the basic essentials of economics covering macro, micro, and global topic areas.
You'll learn how government decisions play an integral role in affecting interest rates, monetary supply, taxes, production of goods, and the international interdependence of the world-wide economy.
On the microeconomics side, you'll study classic marketplace factors — the interplay between corporate strategies and decisions and their effect on pricing, positioning, competition, supply and demand, costs, resource allocations and production amounts, as well as some modern concerns dealing with consumer protection, government regulations, mergers and acquisitions, and energy consumption.
While the career choices for economics majors are varied and extensive, economists account for some of the
highest paying jobs in Silicon Valley, particularly those who work in scientific research and development services.
