Minor in Business Law and Economics

Description

International minor in "Business Law and Economics"

The Minor concept

A minor gives you the opportunity of having a second specialization in your degree. The minor is a bundle of four courses that can be chosen separately but if chosen together rewards a minor.

Purpose

The MSc in Business Administration and Commercial Law provides our students with legal and economic expertise. Today’s business must be competitive in an international environment with complicated legal rules. In our programme the students work on analysing and solving the economic and legal problems which companies encounter in an increasing global competition and the ever-increasing demands from Danish legislation and the EU. Our students gain these skills through a unique integration of subject as business economics and commercial law. During the studies our students experience a progressive, internationally oriented work method, which consists of a combination of law and the company’s other management tools.
