Finance and Economics Foundations

A typical business curriculum abounds with concepts and language from finance and economics. Even the earliest courses may assume an understanding of economics concepts like the basic supply and demand equilibrium model, risk neutrality, and opportunity cost.  Furthermore, the earliest finance courses may assume students are already familiar with concepts like compounded interest, stocks and bonds terminology, and present value.  This adaptive assessor allows students to efficiently fill in gaps in microeconomics, basic finance, or both.  Skills are available in areas including Microeconomic Principles, Supply and Demand Equilibrium, Risk and Return, and Time Value of Money.

Finance and Economics Foundations was developed with the Tuck School of Management at Dartmouth College.  Like the other Foundations modules, its objective is to ensure a baseline competency quickly and efficiently by filling in gaps in students' skill sets without having them waste time on skills they already have.
