The Executive Education program 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. It offers a unique opportunity to learn from world-leading industrial organization economists and competition law and economics practitioners how to bridge the gap between cutting-edge economics and competition law practice.
