Popularized by movies such as "A Beautiful Mind", game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational (and irrational) agents. Over four weeks of lectures, this advanced course considers how to design interactions between agents in order to achieve good social outcomes. Three main topics are covered: social choice theory (i.e., collective decision making and voting systems), mechanism design, and auctions.

Good intro to some applications of GT, particularly on auctions. A bit drier than part one.
Great course. Very relevant to a lot of problems in business. Content was overtly mathematical. More practical examples cold have been interesting to solve.
I have been grateful to be part of both Game Theory I and II, thank you for all this was very helpful for my career
Overall, the course was good. Somehow, the concepts were not as clear as the basic game theory course. Definitely more advanced.
