FIRST YEAR

During your first year, you will learn the foundations of business and law, how they complement each other, and what relationship they have with other fields within the corporate environment. Through courses like Management Tools and Principles, Mathematics for Management, Constitutional Law, Introduction to Private Law, and Marketing Fundamentals, you will start to develop a critical-thinking mindset that will allow you to approach business and law through an interdisciplinary lense. This first year is also a great time to join an IEU Lab and to take part in a social-impact project.

SECOND YEAR

In this year, you will study advanced courses that focus on corporate law and entrepreneurship. During both semesters, you will study Accounting, Finance, Capital Markets and Commercial Law II, which provide a basic understanding of the corporate world. Our entrepreneurship modules, Entrepreneurship 360º, Entrepreneurship and Innovation and the IE Challenge, will encourage you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and solve legal challenges. You will also study courses related to the economic and legal sectors around the world.

THIRD YEAR

During the third year, you will focus on globalization and the economic and legal environment. Students begin by exploring how globalization is impacting the fields of business and law through the Strategy, Multinational Enterprise, EU Law and Contracts modules. Then, through the Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Global Economic Environment, Administrative Law I and Taxation I modules, you will analyze different economic environments and learn how to make better business decisions. In addition to this, students have the chance to look closely at corporate and entrepreneurial law.

FOURTH YEAR

In your fourth year, you can choose to pursue an internship or spend a semester or two on an exchange at one of our prestigious partner institutions. You will select elective courses from a wide range of options, and tailor your study path in order to pursue the areas you are truly passionate about. Finally, all students have the opportunity to acquire invaluable professional experience by completing an internship.

FIFTH YEAR

In your final year, you will work on and present your final project, which can be on a topic of your choice. This in-depth research will form the foundation of a final written project, which will be presented to a panel of academics and professionals. Alongside this, you will learn the soft skills needed to manage a multinational corporation through the Organization Behavior, HR and Labor Law I modules, as well as how to address conflicts in the Litigation I and Private International Law modules.
