Advanced Microeconomics

Prof. Dr. Florian Herold

Dr. Stefanie Schmitt

Dominik Bruckner, M.Sc.


The course provides an introduction into modern microeconomic theory. Students will be trained in applications of the standard microeconomic toolkit at an advanced level of mathematical and conceptual rigor. Central goal of the course is the mastery of key techniques of microeconomic analysis such as the analysis of individual choice with and without risk, the computation of equilibria in exchange or production economies and games. Special emphasis is given to the economics of information. Lectures are in English.
