Programme Structure

The MBL-FU is a two-term programme. It comprises 8 modules and a master thesis period. Central constituents of each module are the in-class lectures, seminars and tutorials that take place full-time on Fridays and Saturdays (occasionally also on Thursdays) at the Department of Law. As part of our E-learning concept, different online study and work designs realized via the programme's internet platform complement and enhance the on-site lectures. 

The postgraduate master programme "International and European Business, Competition and Regulatory Law" is divided into two sections. The first section covers the first term of studies (October to March) and deals with the legal and economic foundations of business, competition and regulatory law. Furthermore, students are taught how to draft and implement a contract. During the second term (April to September), the second part of studies addresses competition and regulatory law only. In the module "Regulatory Law", students specialize either in energy or telecommunication law.
