The Master of Law and Business (LLM/MLB) was developed by two of the most successful private universities in Germany: Bucerius Law School and the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management. The program is accredited by the German Accreditation Council.

The best of two worlds

Bucerius Law School and WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management have combined their expertise in the fields of law and business respectively, to develop an innovative program, which serves the need for interdisciplinarily educated professionals.

In 2006, the first generation of students enrolled in the program, which has since then graduated more than 500 professionals from over 100 countries.

As of 2014, Bucerius Law School offers the Master of Law and Business Program independently. In addition to the unique MLB degree, students now have the option of pursuing the internationally well-established LLM degree with a focus on business law. Furthermore, the program has been restructured to focus on one major theme – the founding and development of an enterprise which pursues both the legal and business aspects of that development.

New perspectives for students and researchers
