Learning outcomes

The course covers topics of consumer theory, production theory, and behavioral economics with a focus on social preferences and behavioral industrial organization. It is divided into two modules. The first module will analyze traditional economic models of individual decision-making, consumer behavior, and firm behavior. The second module will introduce concepts of behavioral economics and pay attention to alternative theories of individual choice behavior and industrial organization. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical exercise classes aiming at applying the concepts and methods developed during the course. At the end of the course, students should be able to i) understand the determinants of optimal consumers' and firms' choices, ii) use analytical and graphical tools to solve optimization problems, iii) apply orthodox and behavioral economic models for the analysis of markets structure and behavior, and iv) critically assess the implications of the different models for the analysis of individuals’ and firms’ choices.

MODULE 1

Traditional Approach to Consumer Theory:
- preference relations

- advanced monopoly theory
- markets for homogeneous/differentiated products
- self-enforcing collusion

MODULE 2

Examination Methods

Students' preparation will be assessed through a written (if in presence) or oral (if online) exam that will include open questions on the theory and a number of exercises. The two exams are equivalent in terms of content and require the same skills and knowledge. The exam, whatever its form, will test the students' accurate and thorough understanding of the concepts, methods, and models explained during the course as well as their ability to use theoretical tools in order to solve empirical questions.

Moreover, students are given the opportunity to present an article to the class. The lecturers will distribute the articles among which a student can select the one (s)he wants to present.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Graduation


Doppio Titolo

Grazie ad una rete di accordi con Atenei esteri, l’Università di Verona offre percorsi formativi internazionali che consentono l’acquisizione di un doppio titolo di studio. L’ammissione ad un CdS a doppio titolo consente di conseguire contemporaneamente, nel tempo di un normale ciclo di studi (di cui una parte viene svolta all'estero), sia il titolo di studio dell’Università di Verona che il titolo rilasciato dall'Ateneo partner, garantendo di vedere riconosciuto il diploma di laurea in entrambi i Paesi.
L'accesso al doppio titolo (così come l’eventuale sostegno finanziario) è regolato da uno specifico bando, e il numero di posti è limitato.
