With the LL.M. (Master of Laws), German Graduate School of Management and Law is offering an internationally respected legal title. Our LL.M. in Business Law is aimed at non-legal practitioners who, faced with the increasing entwinement of operational and legal questions in business practice, correspondingly want to gain an additional qualification.
We are aiming at young or future managers who, coming from professional backgrounds, want to deepen their knowledge in a particularly practical way by acquiring an academic title. Our programme is largely a weekend programme and lends itself really well to being combined with business activities.
The title ‘LL.M.’, which was initially established in the USA, comes from the Latin word ‘Magister Legum’ (Master of Laws) and the double ‘LL.’ is the corresponding Latin abbreviation for a word in plural form.
Legal questions play an increasingly important role in business practice. Business decisions are becoming increasingly entwined with legal impact assessments. As part of managerial tasks, it is important that the legal side is taken into consideration and included in the decision-making process. Leaders who master this are better able to weigh-up risks, tackle problems with more awareness and greater accuracy and are therefore more successful in performing their duties for your company.
The LL.M. in Business Law provides managers with the knowledge and ability to intelligently and effectively manage, coordinate, implement and solve all topics related to law.
The Masters programme is aimed at business managers, engineers, economists, natural scientists or social scientists who have at least one year’s business experience after completing their first degree and who, as budding managers in a company, want to acquire a legal qualification.
