Pretty easy, overall.
Dr Pellitteri made a course I assumed difficult so simple that it felt like kindergarten. She provided tools, templates and materials that simplified the course and the interesting part was that the students could relate the course with the economic situations in their home countries, countries of residence and around the globe. My insight into world economic problems and outlook improved tremendously.
This course helped me to determine macroeconomic conditions, causes of business cycles, and interactions of monetary and financial markets within the real economy. Case studies of different economies were discussed, impact of certain political decisions on the economy was also discussed, e.g., BR-EXIT I was able to learn to develop strategies for driving growth in different economic environments. Assess supply, demand, utility, and price elasticity to make strategic business decisions for my company and develop price discrimination strategies to maximize profits for my company. She analyzed and described industry and market structures to maximize competitive advantage and gave us real life examples. We were also able to evaluate internal and external risks and techniques for managing risks and in all the assignments, apply economic reasoning to solve real-world business problems. I had an Honors grade in this course!

Advice for students:
Read and research economic journals and all materials given by the Professor. Use materials like Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, The Economist etc, Asking a lot of questions also helps.
