Teachers : Roberto GALBIATI (Chargé de recherches), Mario LUCA (Teaching Assistant). Pedagogical Format : Lecture alone Course validation : The evaluation will be based on two tests : a) One take home (40% of the ﬁnal mark) : students will have to write a short essay (3 pages max) in which they will apply economic reasoning to a social situation we are not covering in class. The assessment will depend on the clarity and originality of the reasoning. b) A ﬁnal exam in three parts (60% of the ﬁnal mark) : c) A series of short questions on the material covered during the course. d) One or two questions in which we'll ask to apply economic theory to a situation not necessarily covered in class. e) One or two questions asking to comment some empirical result.Course Description : The objective of the course is learning how to use economics to understand situations that according to the common wisdom belong to the domain of other social sciences (sociology, political sciences, demography, criminology and legal studies). We will apply both simple economic theory and empirical analysis. The course does not substitute for the analysis of these disciplines but rather provides a complementary view on complex social phenomena. Required reading : Becker, G.S., "Nobel Lecture : The Economic Way of Looking at Behavior",Journal of Political Economy, 101(3), juin 1983, 385-409.
Workload : There are 2 take-home exams (2 x 25% of the ﬁnal grade), and a ﬁnal individual assessment (50% of ﬁnal grade). Pedagogical Method : 6 sessions of 2h each (12h00). Course Description : This course aims at enhancing students' ability to analyze the circumstances of ﬁrm strategies from an industrial economics viewpoint. Each lecture starts with a recent case that introduces a business issue, such as the choice of production capacity, competition in product quality, investments in risky innovation, entry deterrence and commitments, or supplier-retailer contracting. The emphasis is put on the relevance of economic analysis (simple models) for the understanding of strategic interactions among competing ﬁrms in down-to-earth business circumstances. In order to beneﬁt fully from the series of lectures, participants must have a taste for the application of theoretical approaches to real-world issues, and be comfortable with basic algebraic techniques.
