Career opportunities

The programme makes you apt to work with various legal issues in international business operations including the law regulating trade and taxation in general as well as more specific areas such as intellectual property law, competition law and investment law.

The EU and international law methods and the knowledge and skills taught in the programme are a necessity for consultants, legal advisors, judges and civil servants involved in international business and transactions, as well as for business decision-makers. The programme is suited for employment within private practice, national and EU institutions, international organisations and legal research.

The programme’s optional courses allow you to design individual specialisation and profiles, which will provide you with a competitive edge when applying for positions after graduation. The Master's degree also adequately prepares students for PhD studies in European and international trade and tax law.

The good reputation of the professors is really an advantage when applying for a job, since the potential employer may know of, and appreciate, your professors. A further advantage of this programme is that you develop and improve your research skills significantly. I benefit from this skill every day as I'm often faced with challenging questions in my work life.
