The master’s degree in business law is a continuing education course for students who have a first professional university degree. The course is intended to provide students with specialist knowledge in business law and the skills for interdisciplinary problem solving, which they need for advancement to management positions or to legal staff positions in companies.

In addition to imparting in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of the legal basis of economic activity, the focus of the course is on acquiring the management skills required for management positions.


The five-semester part-time master’s degree in commercial law begins in the summer semester and ends with the Master of Laws (LL.M.). The combined course consists of about 2/3 of self-study sections and about 1/3 of face-to-face events. The course content, which is the subject of lectures in traditional courses, is conveyed in the combined course via didactically prepared self-study media (study letters). In addition, full-day face-to-face events are usually held every fortnight on eight Saturdays per semester. Learning takes place in groups of around 25 students.

In addition to the presence, the exchange between students and teachers is supported by the ILIAS learning and communication platform. Detailed information on the content and objectives of the modules can be found in the download box.
