After completing the course, students will be able to “apply game theory to analyze strategic behavior in a variety of settings including auction design, Web advertising, network routing, and social marketing,” along with understanding “the processes by which ideas, beliefs, opinions, products, technologies, and social conventions spread through social networks.”

Review: “The class was very informative and has already helped me in my filed to help explain how connections work in relation to our implementation of social and digital technology. However the most frustrating part of the course is that the video lectures go over the most remedial equations while the quizzes and final are much more complex… I would suggest that the show more than one example in the videos.” For additional reviews, click here.
