The objective of this economic intelligence module is to shed light on the importance of strategies related to information, bargaining, and lobbying with a perspective that accounts for the fact that economies are globalized.
The module will focus on issues related to globalization, the society of information and the knowledge economy, strategies related to the usage of information, methods of information acquisition, methods and consequences of bargaining (with a behavioral perspective), lobbying analysis (with its multiple dimensions, notably strategic and behavioral). The course will put into perspective theoretical tools taught in class by presenting issues related to corporate security, information manipulation and possible influence and counter-influence maneuvers.
The course will combine conventional lecturing approaches with simulations that will give an opportunity to students to participate in experiments. The in-class experiments will allow for a better assimilation of the rich theoretical concepts taught in class, notably the ones related to information acquisition methods, bargaining methods, and lobbying.
