Top Part time Masters in Business in Africa. A nation’s competition policy (sometimes called its antitrust policy) is a set of laws and institutions that promote economic efficiency through the protection and encouragement of competitive markets. Kenya has recently entered a new, modern, era in its competition policy history through the passage of the Competition Act (2010) and the establishment of key new institutions for its implementation: the Competition Authority of Kenya and the Competition Tribunal. This new law and its associated enforcement authorities will surely change the landscape for competition in Kenya and advance the nation’s progress toward a modern middle-income economy. For the new competition policy regime to succeed however requires the development of a considerable amount of human capital – people knowledgeable about the law and economics of competition policy who can participate it its implementation, evaluate its effectiveness and contribute to its evolution through the inevitable learning process. To this end, this course is designed as a graduate level course in competition economics. The intended audience are policy practitioners, university faculty members and graduate students, with training in micro economic theory and industrial organization, who are interested in learning about competition economics and becoming themselves part of the “training team” developing courses and curricula to prepare individuals for work in public and private sector organizations focused on competition policy. It is also hoped that exposure to this training will encourage research and advising on competition policy in Kenya as well – as a further part of the development of a competition policy ecosystem in Kenya. Program Delivery This is an intensive course that will run for 17 hours over five days covering the following major topics: Introduction to Competition Policy and review of key economic concepts Agreements between competitors (e.g. cartels) Abuse of a dominant position Vertical agreements and restraints Mergers As indicated, the course will be devoted to the economics of competition policy and is therefore not a course on competition law. However, references to the new Competition Act (2010) of Kenya will be made repeatedly. The course will assume an advanced level of training in micro economic theory. Some background in industrial organization economics (sometimes called industrial economics) would be valuable as well. The lectures will be conducted at the Strathmore Business School at Strathmore University in Nairobi. [-]

A country’s prosperity depends on its competitiveness which is based on its productivity in producing goods and services. Agents such as consumers, firms, counties and public sector agencies play an important part in creating value and supporting their economic development as well as that of their country, region or county. To achieve competitiveness public officers must learn how to allocate scarce resources among the various options. The allocation of resources is determined by interactions in markets. While good macroeconomic policies, stable legal and political institutions, and improving social conditions create the potential for competitiveness, wealth is actually created at the microeconomic level. This course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, micro-level perspective. It is designed to enable public managers both in central government and county government to hone a unique set of skills that will help them play a catalytic role in enhancing county and public sector competitiveness towards sustained economic growth. Learning Objectives Primary purpose of the course is to analyze the factors that enhance competitiveness within public sectors using microeconomic thinking, concepts and tools. It will provide microeconomics tools that could be used to gain competitive advantage in public policy. This will enable counties to take the lead in economic development and to fully utilize areas of competitive advantage compared to other counties. Program Delivery This course provides an intensive, five-day introduction to microeconomics of competitiveness analysis theory and practice. The program heavily employs the case methodology as one of the learning techniques; this gives participants a chance to analyze real public sector microeconomic scenarios as they immerse themselves in the various contemporary competitive strategy challenges. This will be in addition to various class simulations, videos, thought-provoking lectures by our key faculty and enlightening class discussions by fellow participants. By the end of the course, participants will have a conceptual framework which will help them turn their own experience into expertise in gaining competitive advantage. Who Should Attend? This course will be beneficial to individuals involved in the analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy and public Sector competitive strategies. It would also be of interest to individuals in NGOS, Think Tanks and Research Centers who deal with public policy formulation.
