Leerdoelen After taking this course you will learn how to:
1. View economic actions by consumers and firms within the socio-cultural and institutional environment in which they operate.
2. Identify open research questions and place them in the context of the relevant academic literature.
3. Formulate specific research hypotheses and come up with precise empirical strategies to address them.
4. Design, present and critically evaluate an empirical research project.
Omschrijving The course will discuss the various ways in which the socio-cultural and institutional environment shapes the decisions made by consumers and firms, and influences economic prosperity. Different approaches proposed in the literature to study these interactions will be presented and critically evaluated. Moreover, students will be asked to propose and develop original research questions. So the students will not only get familiar with the most currently literature in this area, they will also learn how to apply research methods. The course will culminate with students presenting their own research proposals in an in-class competition.
