The strategy

One of the learning outcomes of Industrial Economics, a 2nd year option on the single honours Economics degree, is that students should "be able to participate in discussions about analytical and policy issues in industrial economics". This requires the students not to just repeat theoretical expositions but to be able to both critique/analyse these theoretical expositions and to apply theory to the real world.
