The purpose of the MCom in Competition and Economic Regulations is to equip students with the specialist knowledge and skills required to undertake rigorous economic analysis in competition and regulatory matters, contributing to the sub-field of applied economics. Successful students will be able to use these skills to analyze firm behavior in competition cases for the competition authorities and in the private sector. This includes mergers, abuse of dominance, and cartel cases across a range of industries. Students will be able to evaluate the potential harm of anticompetitive behavior to consumers, industrial sectors, and the economy as a whole. Students will further engage with important regulatory matters such as tariff setting and investment decisions in regulated industries such as telecommunications, banking, energy, and transportation, which have far-reaching economic implications. Students will put into practice theoretical economic concepts related to competition and regulatory economics and undertake discipline-specific research.
