Congratulations to all the graduates of the 2014/2015 Academic Year


The Brussels School of Competition (BSC) was delighted to be able to welcome Bruno Lasserre, President of the French Competition Authority, as the special guest at its degree awards ceremony this year. A leading figure in competition law, Bruno Lasserre gave an inspiring speech on the challenges posed by the digital economy.

Graduates received their degrees from BSC directors Charles Gheur and Nicolas Petit. The large number of graduates demonstrates that just five years after it was first established, the BSC has made its mark as the training provider of choice for those wanting to broaden their knowledge of competition law and economics.
