MBA European Business Law

Building bridges between the areas of law and business

With the Professional MBA in European Business Law, the WU Executive Academy offers a part-time program for current and potential executives who deal with legal issues in their daily work. The program provides participants with the legal expertise that is required for executive success in the private, public and non-profit sectors in the European Union. 

Understanding challenges in legal systems

In the program you acquire all the skills you need to manage, communicate, and lead more effectively across the combined business, legal, and regulatory specialties. The program covers all areas of the law relevant for doing business in Europe. We do not focus on a particular national legal system. Rather, the program is designed to develop a better understanding of legal problems in all legal systems. With this truly transnational approach, we highlight fundamental general principles, illustrated by examples from the legal systems of several EU member states. Special emphasis is given to European Union Law. The curriculum is supplemented by courses in management. In addition, special courses offer an improvement of soft skills such as negotiation, presentation techniques and contract drafting. Candidates for the program include executives, practitioners and high potentials who deal with legal issues in their daily work.
