HSS 305:Introduction to Industrial Organisation (3)

Learning Objectives:

The course aims to familiarise students with the structure, conduct and performance of industries in a market. Structure means how sellers interact with other sellers, with buyers, and with potential entrants. Market conduct refers to the behavior of the firms in a given market structure, that is, how firms determine their price policy, sales, and promotion. Since we will be studying interactions of sellers with one another, topics from game theory would be covered in the course to understand the strategies adopted by each seller to maximize profits. After completing this course, students would have a better understanding of how industry is organized in a given market structure.
