THE AIM OF THE COURSE:
The course aims to provide students with an understanding of the concepts of game theory and its application in the context of economics, especially when analysing the effects of external factors on economic systems. Students will acquire skills needed to address fundamental issues as well as to solve practical challenges in economics through a combination of lectures, seminars and hands-on use of game theory in their project work. The work will focus on first laying and understanding the foundations on game theory and then looking at specific studies to understand how game theory is applied by researchers and how it can be used in practice.
