Specialised Master in International Business Law and Management

ESCP Europe Business School

1989: ESCP was the first business school to create a Specialized Master programme specially designed for lawyers and legal advisors. Aware of the growing needs to improve dialogue between corporate managers and lawyers, and with help from a sponsorship committee of leading corporate lawyers and legal experts, ESCP developed a prestigious programme that combines the fields of law and management

As the first of its kind, the Specialized Master in International Business Law and Management has acquired an outstanding reputation based on its unequalled excellence.

2009: ESCP Europe adds an international dimension to the Specialized Master in International Business Law and Management by holding courses and seminars at the ESCP Europe London Campus in partnership with the City Law School at London’s City University.

Students who graduate from the programme receive a certificate from City Law School. Those who choose to can apply to the school's LLM or another degree programme to continue their law studies in the United Kingdom.
