I can highly recommend King’s distance learning programme “Public Procurement Regulation in the EU and in its Global Context”, since the in-depth knowledge the programme managed to transfer is amazing. The discussions with highly-renowned tutors and authors as well as with students from all over the world were extremely useful and enjoyable. Even people working with procurement law on a daily basis could learn plenty of new views and relevant facts. I’ve profited from the scientific diversity especially as regards the global context a lot in my regular work.
