The International Business Law (IBL) programme offers you the possibility to learn more about business related subjects such as contract and consumer law, commercial law (including company law, securities markets law, competition law and IP law) and commercial dispute resolution from an international point of view.
The scope of the master´s programme is 120 credits (ECTS) to be completed in two academic years. The programme comprises compulsory and optional studies, seminars and research work including a Master’s thesis. In the first year you will concentrate on compulsory and optional studies, and in the second year you will write your thesis and take more optional studies. You can also include an internship and a student exchange period as part of your degree.
In the IBL programme you will learn by participating in lecture courses and case study courses as well as by writing seminar papers, presenting your work and completing a research seminar while writing your Master’s thesis. Depending on the courses you take, you will either be studying more independently or you will be involved in group work.
In addition to regular courses and seminars, you have the possibility to participate for example in Moot Court Competition or Helsinki Law Clinic courses to gain practical experience, network and meet potential employers. You are also encouraged to seize career opportunities already during your studies. Especially during your second year the year-long research seminar is conducted in such a way that you can work or do an internship during the semesters.
