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.

Top Part time Masters in Economics and Administration in Africa. 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.

People negotiate daily. As a matter of fact negotiation happens several times a day. Despite the frequency of negotiations few people know how to negotiate well and achieve the most optimal outcomes. Many people believe that good negotiators are born. However, in reality anyone can improve their negotiation skills very considerably through training. At the Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness, we teach a negotiation framework that has proved effective both locally and globally. In the current public policy context leaders often need to manage change and this requires incorporating of multiple stakeholders interests which requires excellent negotiation skills. The challenges faced in negotiating with Senators, Governors, Executive Directors and Union staff have one unique technical difficulty- your opponent in one issue may be an ally in the next. Oftentimes public meetings are contentious or participants are deeply divided along issues of resources, values or even identity. Diffusing contentious situations and arriving at a workable solution is both an art and a science that requires a specific set of skills and practice. Individuals involved in analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy need to know the fundamentals of negotiations. They not only need to have the goal in mind, but they must also know how they will achieve the goal. Reaching the goal requires them to know how to say “no” while maintaining a relationship, how to close a deal on time-not too early nor too late, how to present the main interests clearly, how to balance transparency, public disclosure...
