Unique Curricular Concept: The Lifecycle Approach

The unique curriculum of the Master of Law and Businessfollows the life-cycle of an enterprise and pursues both the legal and business aspects of its development. This includes the founding of the enterprise, transforming the firm into a publicly-held enterprise, going international, merging with or acquiring another firm, and restructuring a firm that has financial difficulties.

By using the development of an enterprise as its structural backbone, the Master of Law and Business creates synergies among its various modules. As a result, the students study more efficiently and obtain a better overall understanding of the interrelationship of law and business. Students analyze the realization of an entrepreneurial idea, investigate the founding of a business enterprise, and evaluate the international growth and development of that enterprise.

Elective modules allow students to deepen their knowledge in additional areas of law and business. A mandatory internship and writing of a master’s thesis add practice-oriented and research components to the program. Depending on the focus of their studies and their academic background, graduates are awarded either a Master of Laws (LLM ) or a Master of Law and Business (MLB).
