Market and Strategy National Taiwan University
This course explores the ways in which firm strategy affects, and is affected by, how markets "work." Understanding this interplay is crucial for those interested in management, public policy, consulting, antitrust law, as well as those generally curious about why certain products are (or are not) available and why it is that firms behave the way they do. This course will explore this "interplay" using a mixture of theoretical models and empirical tools with a heavy emphasis on real-world applicability of what we learn.
This course surveys empirical research in industrial organization (IO), with a focus on statistical and game‐theoretic models. The goal of the course is to a) raise students' awareness of what people care about in different industries or market structures, and b) stimulate new research interests. By the end of the course, students should be familiar with the key issues and approaches in empirical IO, the strengths of these research streams, and the opportunities to apply/extend them.
