BUS G 492 Specialized Topics in Economic Consulting (1-3 cr.) P: G 303, G 304,
G 345, and G350. 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. After choosing one, 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.
