Industrial Economics (020205) Program Introduction

As one of the branches of economics, applied economics is typically characterized by the application of economic theory and econometrics to address practical issues in a range of fields. The process often involves a reduction in the level of abstraction of the core of economic theories and on the other hand a supplement of details in the real world. By applying a variety of approaches including quantitative method, case studies, historical analogy and so on, it seeks a reasonable interpretation and inference of the tendency of the real world to solve the practical economic issues.

As a subordinate discipline of applied economics, industrial economics takes the “market and firms” as a research object. It considers corporate behavior from the perspective of markets, and meanwhile looks at the market structure from the standpoint of firms.The main line behind the development of this subject is the market relations among firms of the same industry, as well as the structure and coordination within a single firm....
