Navigating Tomorrow's Competitive and Regulatory Changes
In the past two decades, many aspects of business and social life have been disrupted by high-growth organizations such as Google, Apple, and Airbnb. The market power of corporate organizations is based on brilliant but sometimes debatable strategies. These strategies present challenges for the organizations themselves, as well as policymakers, regulators, and supervisors such as the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets and the European Commission. In this highly dynamic and international environment, strategy, competition, and regulatory challenges require broad expertise related to industrial organizations, strategic management, competition law, and econometrics. This Master’s program focuses on the academic and practical toolkit to operate in the arena of powerful corporates and international policymakers.
Are you interested in international competitive strategies, economic and legal perspectives on market power, the role of private equity, and mergers and acquisitions? Do you want to make a difference in increasing social welfare by balancing private and public interests in the functioning and regulation of markets? Do you want to have a professional role at leading, fast-growing businesses, policymaking organizations, regulatory and supervisory bodies, or economic and legal consultants? If so, we think you’ll be well suited to a Master’s in Strategy, Competition, and Regulation.
