An innovative combination of law and business

The innovative curriculum of this master’s program is oriented along a single major theme – the founding and development of an enterprise – as this perfectly illustrates the relationship between legal and business issues.

For those with a special interest in arbitration or entrepreneurship, the program offers the opportunity to specialize in these areas. In addition to course work, all students are expected to complete a two-month internship, write a master’s thesis and participate in a social project.
