Economics, Regulation and Competition in Public Services

Introduction

The master's degree in Economics, Regulation and Competition in Public Services provides specialized training in the professional area of economics, regulation and competition in public services for engineers and holders of bachelor's degrees and pre-EHEA undergraduate degrees in economics, law and administration.
The degree provides specialized training in the regulation of network services (energy and telecommunications), in the provision of territorial services (water and transport) and, more generally, in the reform of policies on the regulation and introduction of competition in the management of public services.
Initially taught as the UB-specific master's degree in Economics and Regulation of Public Services in the academic year 2001-2002, the course will gain official status as a university master's degree recognized across Spain and throughout the EHEA for the academic year 2013-2014.

Learning objectives

The master's degree in Economics, Regulation and Competition in Public Services is a professionally-oriented programme designed to prepare holders of an undergraduate or bachelor's degree in economics, law or business administration for careers in the economic and legal areas of public service provision, also known in the European Union as services of general interest or universal essential services.
To this end, the master's programme offers specialized professional training in the field of public service economics and law, competition policy, market regulation of network services (energy and telecommunications), the provision of regional public services (water and transport) and public services reform policy.
The course is designed to provide students with the skills and competences to address the problems encountered in public services in a confident and instinctive manner. In particular, the programme prepares graduates to deal with problems related to the liberalization of economic public services, leading to freedom of establishment and competition among providers in the provision of certain services.
