In a moment in which all over the world there are concerns of growing industrial concentration and increasing market power by firms, some are calling for antitrust authorities to be stricter when they vet mergers, while others defend the current standards. The ensuing discussion touches upon issues which are often very technical and may not be easy to understand.
The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on the Competitive Effects of Mergers will provide participants (whether lawyers or economists, working for firms or in agencies) with a thorough understanding of the crucial role of competition enforcement in merger control, by looking at established and new economic theories on mergers, the relevant empirical methods, as well as providing insightful discussions on recent high-profile merger cases in Europe and the US.
The program's faculty includes leading academic and professional economists, with extensive experience in the application of economic analysis to the competition enforcement in merger cases.
The course will be structured in a series of intensive sessions over three days.

"This is an interestingly technical and a highly intensive Master's program for anyone who wants to broaden and deepen their understanding of firms' operations and welfare considerations in a regulated and competitive environment… The course challenged every bit of my thinking."

"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."
