The course presents the main operating models of a company in a competitive market in terms of technological constraints, balance sheet, and objective function with real cases as an example.
The course aims to provide: a basic and wide-ranging analysis of the company, its structure, its functioning and the conditions that regulate its survival and growth; a stylized representation of the company, which highlights its complexity while aiming at simplification. A compromise will be sought between the vastness of the subject and the limitation of a basic course.
The main contents of the course are: - Technology and production - Costs - Profit maximization - Market equilibrium and efficiency - Externalities - Information asymmetries - Increasing returns, network effects and lock-ins in the digital economy The theoretical contents are exemplified by case studies and statistical analyzes related to the context of Region Liguria
