International Business Law

The course is designed to provide students with specialist knowledge of key areas of law relevant to international business. The course aims to enhance professional skills and ability to locate, interpret, analyse and criticise the laws and rules, policies and practices that are essential to the functioning of international business. The programme is ideally suited for those who are already employed or are seeking employment in a variety of sectors including business, finance, transport, energy and public service.
