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 grew substantially due to applications in industrial organisation. More recently, there have been important advances in empirical work to test the new theories and shed light 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. 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. Academics who teach this course include some of the leading experts in the application of industrial organisation to competition policy.
