BUS G 492 Specialized Topics in Economic Consulting (3 cr.) This course develops
and sharpens the research and writing skills relevant to a career in economic consulting.
It is centered around a student-specific research paper. Each student identifies
possible topics for the paper such as the analysis of a specific industry or company,
the effects of globalization on an industry, mergers and acquisitions in an industry,
the effect of particular government policies, or the effect of a new technology.
The course sessions provide a forum for students and instructor to give each other
input on the various subjects. Students will learn how to choose a topic for analysis,
how to apply knowledge of economics, and how to write up the analysis so that someone
less knowledgeable can still benefit from it.
