The purpose of this SLP is to provide practitioners in the field, including those working for competition authorities and regulators in different African countries, with key economic theories and concepts coupled with how they are applied in practical scenarios. This will enable them to directly apply the knowledge gained in order to rigorously analyse mergers and acquisitions, assess the possible abuse of market power by dominant firms, and identify likely coordinated conduct (cartels).
Programme attendees will be expected to have at least an undergraduate Bachelor's Degree in Commerce, Law or the equivalent and a background in competition law and policy.
