THE INTERNATIONAL HANDBOOK ON TEACHING AND LEARNING IN ECONOMICS, Gail Hoyt, KimMarie McGoldrick, eds., Edward Elgar Publishing, 2012 

In this chapter, we address the problems of teaching microeconomic principles to business students. We describe the peculiar features of student demand that make teaching economics using a model-based pedagogy unsuccessful. We conclude that a problem-solving pedagogy is a better way to satisfy student demand for business education.

Keywords: Managerial Economics, Business Education, Problem-Solving Pedagogy, Microeconomic Principles
