Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2018-19

The second course of Mathematics for first year students has been organized as the continuation of Mathematics I, this course provides a rich set of tools for multivariable calculus. The main focus relies on mathematical optimization techniques applied to problems in Business.



Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)

General Competences (CG)

  • CG2 : Capacity for team work.
  • CG3 : Capacity for self-learning.
  • CG4 : Apply professional criteria based on the use of technical instruments to analyse problems.
  • CG5 : Capacity to take decisions by applying acquired knowledge to practical situations.
  • CG6 : Obtain important information from the data that is impossible for non-professionals to recognise.
  • CG8 : Analyse problems using critical reasoning, without prejudices, precisely and rigorously.
  • CG9 : Capacity for synthesis.


General Competences acquired at University of Alicante (CGUA)

  • CGUA1 : Read and communicate in a foreign language in a professional environment, especially in English.
  • CGUA2 : Use computer, I.T. and communications technology tools as a matter of course in all of one's professional activities.
  • CGUA3 : Capacity for oral and written communication.


Specific Competences (CE)

  • CE1 : Contribute towards the correct management of resource allocation in both the private and public context.
  • CE10 : Capacity to apply the knowledge and skills acquired to solve theoretical and applied economic problems.
  • CE11 : Analytical skills for developing theoretical frameworks that simplify study of the real economy and the capacity to set appropriate levels of abstraction when studying different economic questions.
  • CE12 : Be able to use the appropriate tools for the analysis, diagnosis and solution of economic questions and problems.
  • CE3 : Bring a rational approach to the analysis and description of any aspect of economic reality.
  • CE4 : Evaluate the consequences of different options for action and select the best one according to the objectives set.
  • CE9 : Understand economic institutions as the result and application of theoretical or formal representations of how the economy works.
