Emphasis is placed on analyzing and understanding strategic market interactions and the use of various pricing practices. The course explores ethical dilemmas that people face in firms and markets and offers guidelines to help values-centered leaders make the right choices in business. Prerequisite(s): ECNM 592 Economic Concepts (2)  or equivalent.
