Connection to Research and Practice

The course is connected to the research front of Industrial Organisation, both theoretically and empirically. It also applies a wider theoretical frame (intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary) incorporating e.g., behavioral economics, sustainability, law, and entrepreneurship. Issues connected to competition and economic efficiency are fundamental to all research areas of JIBS.
There is a close connection to contemporary competition and regulatory evaluations performed by governmental institutions (e.g., Swedish governmental agencies and the EU) and international organisations (especially OECD). In particular, the students will work with the latest version of the competition toolbox of OECD in relation to analyse and reflect theoretically and empirically upon performed evaluations.
