Objective: To analyze the managers' decisions with microeconomic tools.

Program and contents:

This course illustrates, with economic analysis tools, the decisional problems that managers face within firms. It displays the analytics elements that guide their decisions. Departing from concrete managerial problems, optimal decisions are displayed through concepts from microeconomic theory. The course is shared into three parts:

 1) The first part studies the managers' decisions: estimation of demand, determination of optimal pricing, analysis of costs
2) In the second part, the firm is then replaced in its competitive environment; several market structured are analyzed: perfect competition and imperfect competition, notably monopoly and oligopoly?
3) The third part analyzes the sources of inefficiency of the market, and proposes examples in terms of decision-making in different possible contexts, such as asymmetric information or bargaining.
