To prepare the students, not majoring in mathematics, with the essential tools of calculus to apply the concepts and the techniques in the field of economics. In order to satisfy the requirements of this course, students will need to acquire a thorough understanding of the mathematical concepts introduced during the semester, and will need to demonstrate that they can apply the corresponding tools and ideas to unfamiliar problems. The objective is to confront the students to advanced mathematical techniques so as to enable them handle economics models, interpret the results and solve complex problems.
