An innovative multidisciplinary and combined curriculum in the exciting and rapidly growing field of Competition and Regulation, offered jointly by two of Utrecht University's most prolific schools.

The programme focuses on both public and private issues of the regulation of markets (banking, energy, telecom, transport, and other regulated sectors) private equity, hedge funds, competition and competition policy, corporate governance and regulatory policy and effective enforcement . At all times it is the interplay between the economic and the legal that is the prime focus of the programme. Graduates will be able to bridge the often existing gap between these disciplines and be able to communicate effectively. The programme has been set up in response to growing demands of the international economy for multidisciplinary experts in competition and regulatory issues. It addresses real managerial and legal issues as well as the underlying economic theories behind such cases as: * the failed multibillion euro acquisition of TNT by UPS in 2013; * the approx. 300 million euro fines that were given to multinational television manufacturers like Philips and LG Electronics in December 2012 for illegal price fixing; * the adequacy of governance codes in getting to grips with Rhineland vs. shareholder economies;
