Master Coördinator

"In the International Business Law masters program, we focus on the basic question of: What is it that lawmakers and business lawyers do? The goal of the program is to prepare students for an international legal or corporate environment. Students will work on case studies that reflect the challenges that lawmakers and business lawyers deal with everyday in their work. We teach students how to add value to real-life business transactions."
