Economics of firm strategies and innovation (Site UCL) [30.0]
Economics of Business Strategies and Innovation (UCL campus) [30.0]
Making Europe the most competitive knowledge society in the world is the stated aim of the European Union. Innovation and information and communication technology are at the centre of the different aspects of knowledge. How does knowledge differ from other goods? Do the ways in which it is produced, acquired, spread and used merit special treatment from public authorities? The Strategies, Global Competition and Innovation focus aims to provide students with the tools to answer these questions. The selection of both compulsory and optional subjects is based on an interdisciplinary approach to the way markets work, with particular reference to the field of information. This approach brings together the different perspectives of public authorities with businesses as economic players within the regulatory framework. This is achieved, amongst other things, through the analysis of the framework (objectives, content and impact of European microeconomic policies: competition policy, industrial policy and foreign trade policy).
