In Industrial Organisation students study firm behaviour, market structure and performance, and government regulation. The basic questions the subject covers are: How are companies organised? How do they make pricing and other strategic decisions? Is a more competitive market better than a more monopolistic market? How can government regulation reduce the harmful effects of non-competitive behaviour of companies? The subject emphasises the application of economic theory to business problems.
