Master in International Business Law
The Master in International Business Law prepares students for careers in the legal and commercial fields governing international business. This degree will provide a substantial analysis of business issues and the regulation of trade in goods, services and capital, including arbitration, finance, comparative law and competition law, amongst others.
The programme aims to provide students with a comprehensive insight into international business practices, enabling them to understand and respond to legal challenges on a global scale. The world of business today requires trained experts with legal principles and the most varied forms of governance. Traditional legal systems are becoming gradually complex, owing to rapid globalisation, which demands proficient lawyers with an international perspective.
The first year of the curriculum focuses on the integral aspects of business law, including corporate law, international tax law, banking law, intellectual property, international trade law and the European market. The second year focuses on the interplay of economic, financial and social forces.
Students will master legal reasoning and hone their abilities of sustaining a debate, as well as refine public speaking, evaluation, negotiation and decision-making skills. Students will also sharpen their expertise in litigation; particularly skills related to international arbitration proceedings.
Employment opportunities within the government, political, media, and business law fields are lucrative and competitive as graduates with a specialisation in International Business Law are highly sought after. For emerging and experienced professionals, career prospects are remarkably high with job opportunities in senior positions in government, legal, and diplomatic institutions, NGOs, legal advisors in the private sector or as consultants for major multinational corporations.
