As of October 2018, the Postgraduate Master of European Studies offers individual courses in addition to the regular master programme.
This is of interest to people with a university degree seeking further training on EU-related matters that do not have the time or resources to complete the whole master programme. At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of successful completion.

|Contents||The Digital Economy is data driven. New data-based digital markets emerge and provide consumer benefits. But network effects result in new dominant market players. Are traditional competition law principles like market power, dominance and abuse sufficiently robust to address the new challenges? Do we need to adapt?
Based on a solid introduction into the general principles of competition law (normative and political/economic setting) we will discuss leading cases from both the EU and Germany. The interplay with data protection/privacy and other selected issues linked to competition law will be debated. The participants should be enabled to both understand the structural arguments (competition law as a regulatory tool) and the legal problems with a view to critically assess the ongoing debate.
