Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description: This course provides an introduction to more advanced concepts of Game Theory and mostly applies these concepts to topics in Industrial Organization. Roughly speaking, Industrial Organization analyses both the functioning of markets and firms' behavior in markets. This course builds on and is a continuation of the course "Entscheidungs- und Spieltheorie (MA)". Important applications discussed in this course are auctions and so-called signaling games that are prevalent in both business and daily life.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Mid-course exam (50%) and final exam (50%). Bonus points can be earned by solving problems in class (homework assignments to be solved in groups). Details will be announced during the first class meeting.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Students should master intermediate microeconomics and the game theory concepts covered in the course "Entscheidungs- und Spieltheorie (MA)". There will be a midterm and a final exam that determine your final grade with equal weight.
