This course studies the internal organisation of firms and other organisations. It provides a rigorous introduction to foundational theories, and then discusses applications to real-world managerial problems. How should incentives be designed in organisations? How should conflict within an organisation be resolved? When should organisations outsource and when should they produce internally? Why do organisations arise in market economies? Tools from game theory, information economics and contract theory are introduced and applied to analyse these (and other) questions.
