CBS Minor in Business Law and Economics

We would like to invite students around the world to take part in our investigation of and education in the connection and relationship between business law, management and economics.

CBS Minor in Business Law and Economics

At Copenhagen Business School you can take part in our interdisciplinary research-based education in business law, management, and law and economics. The CBS minor in Business Law and Economics is a one semester intensive program based on more than 30 years of experience in interdisciplinary research and education in business law and economics. We focus on the efficiency of the legal system in regard to business and society, game theory and legal institutions, negotiation, the internal market, negotiations and international legal problems. We believe the economic analysis of the law contributes on several levels to optimizing the knowledge and use of business law and contracts.

The semester consists of:

Mandatory courses

The MSc in Business Administration and Commercial Law provides our students with legal and economic expertise. Today’s business must be competitive in an international environment with complicated legal rules. In our programme the students work on analysing and solving the economic and legal problems which companies encounter in an increasing global competition and the ever-increasing demands from Danish legislation and the EU. Our students gain these skills through a unique integration of subject as business economics and commercial law. During the studies our students experience a progressive, internationally oriented work method, which consists of a combination of law and the company’s other management tools.

The economic discipline “law and economics” has a high profile in our study programme. You will benefit from more than 30 years of specific research at the highest international economic and legal level.

Join us for this semester and be a part of our mission to develop the law through the application of economic theory and visa versa in a business and welfare perspective.
