Graduates of this Master’s track will be particularly well qualified for an international career at the EU institutions, in EU Member State governmental organizations that deal with economic regulation and competition law, as well as private practice. Either as a practitioner at a national or international law firm or as in-house lawyer at a national or international company. You find our graduates in international law firms specialized in competition law and economic regulation and as corporate lawyers in multinational companies. But also in the EU institutions, most notably DG Competition, as well as national competition authorities and national Ministries of Economic Affairs.
Alternatively, graduates may choose to continue their legal studies and pursue a PhD in European law.
The Netherlands organization for international cooperation in higher education (Nuffic) has compiled a website about finding a job in the Netherlands for international students: Career in Holland.
‘This master immerses into a wide spectrum of matters related to detecting and facing anti- competitive behaviors on the market. Therefore, it is a perfect choice for someone fascinated by the dynamics of competition law and regulation.
This track starts with an in-depth twelve-week course focusing on competition law and its interaction with various elements of economics. I particularly appreciated that this programme is constructed in a flexible way which allows students to choose elective courses according to their interests.
The theory and practical knowledge gained during last year allowed me to find an internship in a law firm as well as the traineeship within the European Commission, both in the domain of competition law. Beyond educational aspect, I highly enjoyed Amsterdam’s international nature.’
