- Program Description:
- Degree offered: LL.M. Finance (Master of Laws in Finance degree program). The program overcomes the traditional separation of the academic disciplines of law and business/economics. The program teaches you aspects of both law and business/economics and focuses on their intersection and interplay. Thus, you will gain the competence and insights to appreciate the legal framework, constraints on economic decisions and economic consequences of legislative directives and legal practice. You will be taught by prominent academics and leading practitioners from both areas of expertise.
The interdisciplinary program, which is conducted entirely in English, requires no German language skills. The LL.M. Finance program is international in every respect: our curriculum, our faculty and our students. The courses offered by the LL.M.

Our large faculty comes from over ten countries in Europe and the United States. In addition, our students come from all over the world – generally from more than 25 countries each year.
The curriculum will enable you to gain both a theoretical understanding as well as a practical insight into the specific requirements of banks and corporations, international law firms and accounting and auditing firms, the European Central Bank and Germany's Bundesbank. This is because in addition to outstanding academics, the majority of our faculty consists of top practitioners from the fields of law, banking, central banking and financial regulation.
