European Business Law - Master Programme

Master's programme2 years120 credits

The programme provides an in-depth understanding of both the practical and the theoretical aspects of business law within the European Union and of how the internal market operates in a global context. Students also acquire knowledge of EU constitutional law as a necessary basis for the understanding of European business law.

The programme provides both general and specific knowledge of the European Union legal framework, which is necessary for students intending to work as legal advisors or business decision-makers. Students can tailor the programme to suit their own interests, which gives them a competitive edge when applying for future positions on the labour market.

European Business Law is a two year programme, but students have the possibility to write a master thesis at the end of the first year and then finish the programme with a one year degree.

Career prospects

With a unique combination of traditional legal studies in business law (i.e. contract law, company law, tax law and competition law) and economic- and trade-related issues, this programme is ideal preparation for a career within private practice, national/EU institutions or legal research. It also provides a good grounding for students interested in pursuing an academic career within the University.
