Описание программы

This is level 3 microeconomics course. It is less theoretical than a microeconomic principles course and more attention is given to topics which are relevant to managerial decision making.

Aims and objectives

  • To enable students to approach managerial decision problems using economic reasoning.
  • To present business practice topics using an analytical approach, using equations and numerical insight.


This course is assessed by a three-hour unseen written examination. 

Учебный план:

The course covers basic topics in microeconomics such as supply and demand, consumer theory, labour supply, asymmetry of information, neo-classical view of the firm, production, costs, factor demands, perfect competition, monopoly, monopolistic competition, oligopoly, cartels and tacit collusion. We also analyse some newer material regarding alternative theories of the firm, internal organisation of the firm, market structure, efficiency wages, incentive structures, corporate governance as well as some industrial organisation theories of commonly used pricing practices.

The following topics also form part of the course syllabus:

  • individual (one person) decision making under uncertainty, attitudes towards risk and the value of information
  • theory of games and strategic decision making, including its applications to oligopoly, collusion among firms, product differentiation, entry deterrence and other market practices
  • the effects of asymmetric information in areas such as bargaining, bidding and auctions, situations of moral hazard and adverse selection
  • corporate governance in modern organisations.

Some knowledge of constrained maximisation and lagrangian functions would be helpful for students taking this subject, although this is not a prerequisite.
