Competition is one of the prime organising principles of a market economy. Companies perform better because of it; laws protect its processes, and international institutions enforce these laws when competition comes under threat. In the Competition Law and Economics track, students of the Business Economics Master’s programme learn to understand the intricacies of competition and the regulations that govern it. A track for future business leaders and policy makers that would enjoy working in and with competitive markets.​
