Program

The Master in Law & Management offers a differentiated case-based learning method, structured around a modular logic that encourages students to focus on each course at a time. Our students should expect this approach to be both innovative and intensive.

The practical case studies are developed by the Master’s coordinators and professors, with the participation of specialist lawyers and managers from the first-tier firms that have partnered with us.

The Master in Law and Management’s study plan corresponds to 90 ECTS1 credits, and has a duration of three semesters (30 ECTS credits each). The first semester is taught at FDUL (September 2023 to January 2024) and the second at ISEG (February to June 2024). During the first and second semesters, each course is structured into two weeks of classes and one final week of evaluation. In the third semester, students produce a final master’s work that may be either a project paper or a scientific dissertation.
