Strategy, Competition and Regulation


Utrecht University mapmarker icon Utrecht Research university
Institution Logo Utrecht University

In the past two decades, many aspects of business and social life have been disrupted by high-growth organisations such as Google, Apple and Airbnb. The market power of corporate organisations is based on brilliant but sometimes debatable strategies. These strategies present challenges for the organisations themselves, as well as for policymakers, regulators and supervisors such as the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets and the European Commission. In this highly dynamic and international environment, strategy, competition and regulatory challenges require broad expertise related to industrial organisations, strategic management, competition law and econometrics. This programme focuses on the academic and practical toolkit to operate in the arena of powerful corporates and international policymakers.

Are you interested in competitive strategies, economic and legal perspectives on market power, the role of private equity, and mergers and acquisitions? Do you want to make a difference in increasing social welfare by balancing private and public interests in the functioning and regulation of markets? Do you want to have a professional role at leading, fast-growing businesses, policymaking organisations, regulatory and supervisory bodies, or economic and legal consultants? If so, we think you’ll be well suited to our MSc in Strategy, Competition and Regulation.
