Welcome to the page for the research group in Markets and Competition. Here you can find information about the research profile, the members of the group and recent publications as well as some news on other relevant activities of the group.
The disciplinary ‘home’ of “Markets & Competition” is business economics, i.e. the economic analysis of business behaviour based upon microeconomics supplemented by other social sciences. The group particularly looks at
- the business enterprise and its strategic interaction with customers/consumers (marketing management and buyer behaviour); and
- the business enterprise and its strategic interaction with other business enterprises on markets (competition)
The focus is on general theoretical considerations as well as on empirical research of specific markets and industries (applied business economics). This implies a special regard to the special characteristics of the analysed industries, such as inter alia retailing, energy markets, shipping markets, tourism, sports, media and other event markets.
Members of the group embrace research methods like qualitative empirical research (e.g. case studies), statistical and mathematical modelling (e.g. multivariate statistics and econometrics, game theory), institutional and behavioural theories, etc.
The research activities of the group embrace the relevant subfields:
- Marketing Management & Buyer Behaviour
- Competition and Market & Industry Analysis
- Sports & Event Economics
