Industrial Economics has been the source of some of the most fertile developments in economic theory in the last 30 years. In particular, interest in game theory and transaction cost economics have grown substantially, and there have been important advances in empirical work to test new theories on the behaviour of firms and industries. The new research is informing policy debates ranging from merger policy to the competitive benefits of European integration.
The MSc Industrial Economics is a research-training course which combines the specialist components of theoretical, empirical and policy analysis in the study of industrial organisation. You will receive intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, as well as options from a wide range of modules according to your individual career plan.
