About Quantitative Methods for Competition Analysis at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

A team of leading academics and practitioners will walk you through the latest methods for analyzing competition cases.

The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Quantitative Methods for Competition Analysis provides participants (economists, lawyers and practitioners working for firms or in agencies) with a thorough understanding of recent empirical methods to measure market power and competition, with applications to market definition, merger analysis and damages from anticompetitive conduct.

The program’s faculty includes some of the leading academic economists in the area of industrial organization and competition policy, and practitioners with extensive experience on quantitative methods in competition cases.

    Testimonial from Richard Knudsen, Class of 2018, student at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

    "To me, the Barcelona GSE Master's in Data Science clearly holds its promise of being one of the world's finest programs for Data Science in a Social Science environment. Backed by world-class research, the lectures are academically rigorous and demanding, but also carefully contrasted with hands-on practices delivered by experts from the industry."
