The course covers intermediate microeconomics. It is tailored for early PhD students in Management, Finance or Economics or Master students with a background in microeconomics. The material includes both classical microeconomic theory (consumer and firm theory, partial and general equilibrium, choice under uncertainty), market failure and some more modern topics (game theory and possibly contract theory and challenges to expected utility).
An important part of the course will be devoted to the solution of exercises, both in class and with individual (and group) work.
