About Competition Economics: Abuse of Dominance at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

Abuse of dominance (or monopolization) is certainly the most debated area in competition policy. Recent cases in several jurisdictions around the world have only increased the interest of scholars and practitioners. In Europe, for instance, the path-breaking Intel judgment gives centrality to (and obliges competition agencies to deal with) economic analysis in abuse cases; the Google shopping decision by the European Commission calls into question the possible abusive practices of the dominant platforms which pervade our life; and excessive price cases in the pharmaceutical industry address a worldwide problem but also raise questions about whether competition authorities may end up acting as price regulators.

The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Competition Economics: Abuse of Dominance will provide participants (whether lawyers or economists, working for firms or in agencies) with a thorough understanding of the most recent economic theories of monopolization, will help them apply these concepts in practice, and will review actual cases in the light of an effects-based approach. The program’s faculty includes leading internationally-renowned competition scholars and practitioners with extensive experience of the application of economic techniques to competition cases in this area.

    Richard Knudsen, Class of 2018

    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."
