Access the Course Syllabus

What is the course about?

Students can learn how to make smart decisions through playing games. In every lecture, students will first play some games, explore different strategies in the games and see how well their strategies work. After that, they will be explained how different real life situations, including serious situations in economics, politics, business and even wars can be analysed similarly. Students will be exposed to a glimpse of Game Theory where they will learn how to analyse real life situations, make decisions, find the best response, and deal with dilemmas, etc. Further analysis includes studying greedy strategies, fairness, and efficiency, etc. After completing this course, students will be able to model simple real life situations, perform quantitative analysis and make rational decisions using Game Theory.
