Two-sided markets and networks can be found in many industries, including search engines or communication networks such as the media and the internet. This program will focus on these industries, and propose a discussion on important issues that are currently debated in the economic literature and policy circles : Platforms and Data, Media Platforms and Advertising, Social Media Platforms, and Search and Platform Design.


This program introduces participants to the key concepts at the frontier of applied platform economics. The point of departure is the concept of two-sided markets, where two groups interact through an intermediary, or platform, that captures the value of externalities between the groups.
