The programme in a Nutshell

The programme has been designed to meet the needs of companies and their counsels, who have to cope with increasingly complex competition rules and the unprecedented economic risks arising from the enforcement of those rules.

  • Entirely taught in English in Brussels.
  • Divided into 10 modules and 3 Clinical seminars covering the full range of European competition law and economic issues: joint ventures and horizontal cooperation agreements, vertical agreements and distribution networks, cartels, abuse of dominance, mergers and acquisitions, state aid, etc. The programme 2017-2018 will be pretty much the same as 2016-2017.
  • High-level lectures taught by outstanding academics. Meet our faculty.
  • Flexible training programme compatible with the requirements of professional practice. Every Friday afternoon from 12.30 to 18.00.

He delivered a remarkable keynote speech to the new graduates who received their degrees from BSC directors Charles Gheur and Nicolas Petit.
