EU/EEA students: 15 June (September intake);
Think about the access to finance and opportunities to invest for organisations and individuals. You will then realise how, in today's interconnected world, national and international financial markets have far-reaching effects on virtually all of us around the globe. That is why trading venues and financial institutions such as banks, asset managers and market intermediaries are increasingly regulated. This leads to a growing need for: legal specialists with knowledge of the economic aspects that drive financial transactions; and financial experts who wish to increase their understanding of financial regulations. In the Law & Finance programme, you will be specially trained to work at the intersection of law and finance in this global world.
For detailed information on the courses and curricula, see the e-Prospectus.
The law and Finance Advanced Studies programme is optimally designed to suit requirements for both national and international professional positions. When you graduate, you will be qualified to work in a wide range of organisations such as financial institutions, such as banks and investment firms, European and national financial supervisory authorities, other governmental and inter-governmental bodies and public administration, law firms, judiciary and arbitration courts, companies and academic and research institutes.
