Start of free online course "Competitive Strategy"

This morning the free online course “Competitive Strategy” started!


“Competitive Strategy” is a six-week course designed to teach students how firms behave in situations where strategic decisions are interdependent, i.e. when competitors matter. It will use basic tools of game theory to analyze how firms choose strategies to attain competitive advantage.

Professor Kretschmer will hold the course as a series of video lectures that are freely available (along with slides and quizzes) on the Coursera website.

The ISTO team is thrilled that students from all over the world are participating – we count over 30 countries already!

We wish everyone good luck for the course and hope you all learn something useful!
