This module aims to develop your knowledge of firm strategic behaviour in markets. The course builds on the Intermediate Microeconomics module from Year 2. The aims of this module are to provide analytical tools for you whereby you can understand concepts such as market concentration, monopoly power, price discrimination and firm strategic interaction in markets. You will learn how location is an important determinant for firm markets power and provides a strategic advantage to a firm. You will learn to evaluate key issues about market structure and their implications for different strategies as well as to apply economic theory to the decision making process of firms.
You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course.

If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
