Game theory is the science of strategic decision making in situations where players' actions are interdependent. It provides a method for identifying optimal strategies and predicting the outcomes of strategic interactions. Using lectures, in-class games, and assignments, this course develops the basic tools of game theory as they relate to business situations, and then applies them real-world cases. Topics include strategic cooperation and punishment between firms, strategic commitments, predatory and limit pricing, entry deterrence, and auctions. The final deliverable is a take-home essay in which you apply the course material to a game theoretic setting of your choice. This course requires only basic mathematics skills, but a familiarity with microeconomics and strategy is recommended.
