Transaction-based Governance: An Economic Approach to Regulating Agents Performance in Network Organizations
Regulating performance of acting agents in a network organization is crucial for stability as well as sustainability of complex network of organizations. Modern economics proposes mathematical solutions based on pricing transactions among agents of such networks. Understanding various impacts of proposed solutions in ultimate performance of the network from a systems perspective could be the topic of a master's thesis.

- Conducting research in this field requires in depth knowledge of a specific network organization, basics of economics (micro and macro), governance, engineering economics as well as mathematical modeling and optimization. Passing Fundamentals of Enterprise Systems (ES-621) and Governing Development (ES-677) is a prerequisite for this project.
