Executive Education Program

Our Executive Education program in Competition Law and Economics is aimed at professionals – lawyers, business people, economists – and academics, who wish to develop state-of-the-art skills in the growing field of competition policy.

We offer a unique possibility to learn from some of the best industrial organization economists and competition law practitioners in the world how to bridge the gap between cutting-edge economics and the practice of European competition law.
