Industrial Organisation studies the interdependence of market structures, firm’s conducts, and market outcomes. We look at how market structures affects firms conduct and market outcomes. In this course, students will be introduced to the theory of the firms, imperfect competition, oligopoly theory, and other strategic behaviours. Some applications on competition policy and regulation will also be introduced if time permits.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- In addition to the outcomes achieved by taking the pass lectures in this subject, graduate students will:
- cover some of the same material using more formal analysis;
- be introduced to the academic literature in the IO field;
- Typically a mid term examination and a final exam. Students taking the class at this level may be subject to additional assessment compared with the pass level. (null) [LO null]
