During his tenure, he has also served as the associate dean of faculty and graduation and professional programs at the school. A highly decorated teacher in the MBA program, DeBrock holds masters and Ph.D. degrees in Economics from Cornell University.

Graded: Students can choose to explore course videos, discussions, and ungraded assignments for free, but they won’t be able to submit graded assignments, earn a certificate, or complete a specialization without paying a $79 fee.

Description: Different market structures produce different outcomes. A competitive market, for example, often creates more options and lower prices for consumers. In contrast, a monopoly generally curbs supply, stifles innovation, and benefits only a handful of producers. In this course, students will learn how various market structures shape the long-term vitality of markets. In particular, students will be able to do the following after the course is complete:

  • “Model the impact of external shocks to a particular market structure and demonstrate the new equilibrium price and quantity after the impact of this external shock has played out.

    • Evaluate the efficiency of an equilibrium. Different market structures produce different levels of efficiency.

    • Explain when and why the government might intervene with regulatory authority or antitrust litigation to lessen inefficiencies in some markets.

    • Describe how information problems can cause inefficient outcomes.

    • Understand externalities and consider optimal government response to these market failures.”

Review: No reviews.
