DRE 4010 Advanced Microeconomics
The aim of the course is to give the students an understanding of graduate microeconomic theory at a level expected among Ph.D students in economics, finance and related disciplines.
The course will be taught over 8 weeks, with 2*2hours lectures the first 7 weeks, and one two hour lecture in the last week. There will be also 2 three hour long practice sessions, where the students will solve problem sets/present solutions to problem sets.
Students are required to participate in class both in discussions and by presenting models/material from the reading lists.
After taking this course, students are expected to be able to solve standard microeconomic optimization problems using rigorous solution techniques, and to understand the main concepts used in advanced microeconomics.
