European Competition Law and Regulation Please note:
The Business Law track of the Master's programme International and European Law has been superseded by the track European Competition Law and Regulation.
The programme's content remains essentially the same; however, the new title better indicates its curriculum and focus. Introduction
The European Competition Law and Regulation programme at the University of Amsterdam has been designed with one single aim: to prepare students with the most essential skills that are indispensable for a professional or academic career in European Competition Law and Regulation.
Even though the programme primarily consists of compulsory courses, it provides a broad spectrum of topics including European competition law, European company law, the liberalization rules for the EU telecommunications and energy markets, EU banking and insurance directives, EU public procurement, EU social policy, intellectual property rights and private international transactions.
Studying European Competition Law and Regulation at the University of Amsterdam has the unique advantage of getting in touch with both theory and practice with the help of highly qualified international and European lawyers and lecturers. The quality of the programme is enriched by the University of Amsterdam's double strength in both law and economics through the Amsterdam Centre for Law & Economics (ACLE), which houses over 20 scholars who conduct interdisciplinary research at the interface between these fields. Moreover, students will become familiar with a wide range of European institutions during a study trip in Brussels and will receive guidance in finding internships and in identifying career opportunities once they have successfully completed the Master's programme.'
The European Competition Law and Regulation track of the Master's programme in International and European Law focuses on the European public regulatory framework that is encountered when doing business in the EU. The European treaties define the rights and obligations of business and individuals in terms of the free movement of employed persons, goods, services and capital across the Union. Common policies operate to support these freedoms, including competition rules and rules governing good corporate governance.
