Applicants without a German university degree

Thank you for your interest in our master program on business and economic law (LL.M.oec.)!

This is regularly a one year program with 60 ECTS. It is not a full master program with 120 ECTS.

We start the LL.M. program each summer term (beginning April 1st) and winter term (beginning October 1st). Most of the classes are offered once a year so that students who wish to complete the program in one year can do so.

Before you continue reading, please note that almost the entire LL.M. program is conducted in German. Sufficient knowledge of the German language is required (see below).
