Regular Course: Quantitative Evidence in Merger Control

June 4–6, 2020

Executive education seminar

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this course has been cancelled 

Course objectives:

Merger control cases are growing more complex over time. Competition agencies investigate the price and non-price effects of mergers using econometric and statistical methods. We will review such techniques in this course, look into how they are applied in actual cases, and work together in a mock case in order to develop the skills needed in actual practice.

Key benefits:

• Become aware of novel theories of harm: innovation and mergers, conglomerate effects, killer acquisitions.
• Learn about new models and statistical techniques in merger control
• Integrate economic principles with legal concepts to assess the competitive effects of mergers – horizontal and vertical mergers – in practice
