In the first part, students study a firm’s external environment through the formulation of economic models of competition between firms, discuss management tools to carry out industry profitability qualitative analysis, and critically evaluate the literature on the main sources of a sustainable competitive advantage. In the second part, students study a firm’s internal environment by developing economic models that illustrate the trade-offs that firms face to motivate and coordinate their members’ actions, as well as discussing the main factors that explain firm scope.
