The Economics of Business Success: How to be a Better Manager and Citizen

Colorado School of Mines | Golden, CO | July 17 - 20



“The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tried methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Can economic thinking make you a better manager? A better person? Economics is about more than making and selling products efficiently. Having a foundation in economic thinking allows you to understand individual behaviors and motivations giving you the ability to adapt to meet the needs of your customers, partners, and employees. Being great managers also comes from being great people. Being character-driven leaders means you create value for yourself by creating value for others.
