International Management

In most industries, firms are either subject to direct regulation or under the eye of a competition policy watchdog. Agreements with competitors, mergers and acquisitions, pricing, distribution practices - these and many other dimensions of firm strategy are potentially the subject of scrutiny of government authorities. This course provides an introduction to the role and and impact of public policy on market competition.

The course is based on actual case studies corresponding to litigation cases in Europe and North America. The course covers socially relevant issues such as industrial policy, mergers, cartels and collusion and dominant market position.
