Microeconomics of Competitiveness
Information for Students at Harvard


Sample student projects
from the Harvard course

Thank you for your interest in my course, the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (HBS 1260, HKS PED 329). 

Given other important School initiatives, I will not be offering Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) during the 2013–2014 academic year.  I will be developing MOC-related curriculum this year for HBX, Harvard Business School’s online teaching and learning platform.  This will provide access to the core course concepts for interested students.  The availability of this curriculum will be announced on the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness website (

I very much appreciate your interest in the course, and am sorry for any disappointment or inconvenience.

- Michael Porter
