スタンフォード大学(Stanford University) による Social and Economic Networks: Models and Analysis の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Learn how to model social and economic networks and their impact on human behavior. How do networks form, why do they exhibit certain patterns, and how does their structure impact diffusion, learning, and other behaviors? We will bring together models and techniques from economics, sociology, math, physics, statistics and computer science to answer these questions. The course begins with some empirical background on social and economic networks, and an overview of concepts used to describe and measure networks. Next, we will cover a set of models of how networks form, including random network models as well as strategic formation models, and some hybrids. We will then discuss a series of models of how networks impact behavior, including contagion, diffusion, learning, and peer influences. You can find a more detailed syllabus here: You can find a short introductory videao here:




I was new to network theory but the concepts were very well articulated. A whole new way of looking at what makes social relationships, favor exchange(s) and social networks work. Well worth the time.



Very well done and explained, full of insight in the social network analysis!!! Lots of ideas about using it in company and team behaviours! Economical analysis of financial contagion is insightful!!!

Fantastic course! Compelling examples of application and an enthusiasm for the concepts that is contagious. Would love more from Prof. Jackson!

by Carlos A N T


Professor Jackson is very clear and insightful! Loved his style of teaching. I hope more Economics professors were such good teachers as him.

by Aldrich W


Prof. Jackson is so good at explaining these concepts in the lectures. I have honestly learned a lot regarding this topic and academic area.

by Áron H


The course is extremely interesting and well presented. It is a great introduction to network science with various examples of applications.

An excellent and very useful course. Recommend with no reserves to anyone willing to understand the world from a well structured perspective

by Alejandro M M


Matt is the simple the best! We've covered a lot of different models and examples. Probably the best networks course that you can take.

by Marco R


Useful, well taught, well organized. I suppose the coronavirus epidemic gives an opportunity for a real world example next year

by 李楠楠


Easier to understand network structure, utilities, equilibrium after illustration. Interesting and attracting course to take.

by Amirhessam Y


The course is exceptional, I just wish the instructor would also include chapters that could help researchers in the field.

by Ali K


It was really useful. The instructor was clear and the videos and slides are good. I enjoyed empirical exercise a lot.

by Hugo R G


It has been a beautiful course, where I learn enough information to develop my final degree and master project.

by Anubhav G


A great course which gives an overall idea regarding the tools required to study networks and its applications.

by Nidhi S


A beautiful course that is mathematically rigorous and requires great understanding. Thank you :)

by Jose M B L


tough introduction to social and economic network models but very comprehensive and insightful

by Georgios S


Excellent course. Very helpful for graduate students, on both economics and social sciences!

by Taras Z


Good introduction to the topic! Assignments were helpful as well as optional lecture videos.

Great course by Matt Jackson, who is one of the leading scholars in this area! Thanks!

by John J E V


Excelent course, I would like to continue learning about economic networks analysis.

by Miguel R S


Thank you so so much for doing this. One step at a time towards universal education.

by Apostolos A


Concise and full of useful information. Helped me a lot in my thesis preparation.

by Kajal G


Amazing course, one can learn a lot about network structures and their patterns.
