Aims and Fit of Module

This module equips students with game theoretical techniques that are useful for investigating important problems in business and economics. Students will learn to formulate games (which are simple representations of real-world strategic interactions) and apply suitable solution concepts to analyzing these games. Such game theoretical analyses reveal rationales behind observed behaviors, and guide decision makers towards optimal outcomes.
