Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The main objective of the course is to develop students; awareness for the particularities of companies in the public sector, which are an essential asset to their management in an international context. Due to progressive deregulation and privatization, facility companies increasingly appear international and move away from the previously well-established national and monopolistic character. Nevertheless, there is still need for regulation whenever the monopolistic character is still present (e.g. infrastructure sectors).

Assessment and permitted materials

The topics will be discussed by using a lecture format and respective discussions. Relevant materials include the presented slides as well as mentioned literature. Grading comprises one written exam, one written term paper (in groups), an oral presentation (also in groups) and participation during the course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

In this sense the course will focus on the following aspects:

- Theory about monopolistic behavior and respective outcomes
- Dealing with the adverse effects of monoplies
- International experience with public utilities and their management with a focus on regulatory aspects
