Brussels School of Competition
Official recognition for our diploma!
The Brussels School of Competition has some exciting news: the diploma it offers has now been certified. From now on, the programme in competition law will be jointly organised with the University of Liège and Saint-Louis University. Students who pass their exams will receive an ‘interuniversity certificate in competition law’, which is worth 32 credits.
The Brussels School of Competition (BSC) was established in 2010 under the auspices of FEB and became a private foundation in 2015. Its competition law and economics programme has gone from strength to strength owing to the high demand for training in this field, which is of strategic importance for companies. The courses will also continue to be held at the FEB conference centre, bringing the programme into contact with the world of business.
This certification represents genuine recognition for the work of the Brussels School of Competition and encourages us to continue our efforts in providing top-quality training. However, our greatest source of pride is seeing our former students now fulfilling key roles in renowned law firms, consultancies, major companies and competition authorities. We could not have asked for more.
The academic year 2016-2017 will start in September 2016 and end in June 2017.

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.
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.
