I was part of the first cohort to complete this course, and can highly recommend it for those with some background in economics or law looking to increase their expertise in the fields of competition and regulation. (CCP21)

This is an excellent advanced program for people with some background in competition. The course provides high level insights in economics, law, digital policy, behavioural economics, and regulatory economics in a very systematic way. All the presentations are up to date and provide a detailed analysis of the most recent and relevant cases; and on what we might expect in the years to come in competition and from the regulators. Having small groups was a privilege because it is easier for everyone to share their views and pose questions; and allows a closer interaction with each of the very impressive list of instructors. (CCP21)

The course was indeed interesting and rewarding. I appreciated the level of flexibility in the choice of modules aligned to my interests in my present work path, the high calibre of Professors who possessed extensive competition law experience and married same with current case law and present day studies and the rigour and intensity of the programme has only better equipped me to be more agile and adaptable.

Students may also attend modules on a credit-only basis, taking as few or many as suits their professional needs.
