Programme updated for September 2018 entryThis programme has recently been through our regular programme review; this ensures it addresses the current and future needs of students and employers. Applications are now open for our September course.
This course provides graduates in law or any other relevant discipline with the opportunity for advanced learning in certain key areas of international business law, in academic conjunction with the advanced study of strategic management and marketing modules, which complement and contextualise the legal areas.
The course is delivered with a strongly contextual business bias and students benefit from the networking and employment prospects offered by a large and dynamic Business School.
At the final stage of study (Business Innovation Project) students will be able to choose whether to pursue a purely law-based focus or an interdisciplinary law and management focus.
