Course Brochure


The purpose of this qualification is to equip students with the specialist knowledge and skills required to undertake rigorous economic analysis in competition and regulatory matters, contributing to the sub-field of applied economics. Successful students will be able to use these skills to analyse firm behaviour in competition cases for the competition authorities and in the private sector. This includes mergers, abuse of dominance and cartel cases across a range of industries. Students will be able to evaluate the potential harm of anticompetitive behaviour to consumers, industrial sectors and the economy as a whole. Students will further engage with important regulatory matters such as tariff setting and investment decisions in regulated industries such as telecommunications, banking, energy and transportation, which have far reaching economic implications. Students will put into practice theoretical economic concepts related to competition and regulatory economics and undertake discipline specific research.

Admission Requirements

A potential student must be in possession of: an Honours degree in Economics at NQF level 8; or an Honours Degree or equivalent qualification in Arts, Business, Commerce, Management or Science at NQF level 8 majoring in Economics.

Selection Process

Selection is based on academic merit and the availability of places and hence, may entail the use of additional criteria/requirements; and final admission requirements will, from time to time, be adjusted by the department/ College to account for any University/national higher education requirements or amendments.
