This Friday, November 19, prospective students can meet departments across CEU during Virtual Open Day, including faculty from two newly launched programs - the LL.M. in Global Business Law and Regulation (Department of Legal Studies) and the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA, Department of Public Policy). During the day of live-streamed sessions, participants can learn about CEU’s world-class degrees with dual U.S and Austrian accreditation, student experiences, aspects of the application process and career services.
The LL.M. in Global Business Law and Regulation provides young legal professionals with a unique opportunity to acquire a transnational, practice-oriented legal education that prepares them for the challenges of rapidly evolving economic realities and a constantly changing legal landscape. Its multi-jurisdictional approach, increased focus on the study of regulatory law (environmental law, consumer protection, compliance, etc.) and exploration of intersections between different areas of law (e.g., business and human rights) distinguish it from similar programs offered at other institutions.
“Building on the strengths of its predecessor, the LL.M. in International Business Law, our new program offers an innovative and cutting-edge curriculum and allows participants to focus on selected practice areas,” notes Associate Professor and LL.M Program Chair, Markus Petsche.
Boasting an international faculty comprised of renowned scholars and leading practitioners, the LL.M. in Global Business Law and Regulation offers specializations in International Dispute Resolution, International Economic and Commercial Law, Corporate Law, and Regulation and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The other new program, the EMPA, equips future change-makers with the knowledge base and applied skills to critically and constructively tackle contemporary problems through policy processes at the sub-national, national, and global levels. It offers flexible options for mid-career professionals, and incorporates a project-based learning component via an applied project designed to simulate the type of assignments candidates face in their professional lives.
The learning in the EMPA is problem-focused, centering on relating the latest theory to practice, providing experiential learning, and upgrading critical skills, using an inter-disciplinary and integrated practice-based approach, which builds upon the candidate’s own experience.
