The Competition Agency Leaders Executive Programme (CALEP) is a yearly training program co-organised by the OECD Competition Division and CRESSE. The programme is taught by eminent competition professors, lawyers, economists and members of the OECD Secretariat. The course is tailored to leaders and emerging leaders, such as Heads, Commissioners, Board Members and Senior Officials (Directors General and other high-level officers) of competition and other regulatory agencies throughout the world.

Its main objectives and intended learning outcomes are to give an opportunity to participants to:

  • learn about how to manage the external and internal environments of competition agencies and about the assessment of economic evidence in Courts
  • learn about the latest developments in competition law in the EU, North America and other jurisdictions
  • get acquainted with  OECD instruments, guidelines and best practices, as well as with recent OECD policy work and discussions on the digital economy and other topics
  • get acquainted with HR management issues, developing talent, career progression, leadership and leading change.

A multidisciplinary approach is followed, with courses in competition economics and law and in management taught by leading experts with deep expertise and vast practical experience in competition law and its enforcement from academia, policy world and from the private and public sector.

The course runs includes 18 sessions and two special lectures.
