Bucerius/WHU Master of Law and Business

In today’s global economy, companies, law firms and organizations are regularly confronted with international challenges that require both legal and financial expertise. Launched in 2006, the Bucerius/WHU Master of Law and Business – Joachim Herz Program is a one-year degree program which is jointly offered by Bucerius Law School and the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management.

The interdisciplinary MLB Program is a response to the increasing need in the global economy for legal and business professionals with a solid knowledge of international business law and international management experience.

The MLB Program faculty comprises lecturers from top academic institutions as well as leading legal and business professionals. In addition to coursework built on an intensive and complementary law and business curriculum, MLB Program participants undertake a mandatory eight-week internship in Germany or abroad and complete the Program with a requisite Master’s thesis.

Program enrollment is limited to around 55 participants in order to ensure individual attention, allow easy access to course instructors and encourage intensive discussion. The Program is designed for graduates in law, business or economics and attracts young professionals from around the world. Program participants generally represent over 30 countries worldwide and bring with them their diverse cultural backgrounds and broad ranges of professional experience in law, business, politics, journalism and development. This diversity and prior experience lend to the rich classroom dialogues, intense debates and a challenging and rewarding learning environment.

The MLB is a full-year Program offering strong professional instruction, a Master┤s Thesis, an internship, a social project, soft skills work shops, a “Studium Generale” (general course of studies) and active career planning.

Virtually all courses are oriented toward one of two major topics: the founding and expansion of an enterprise, and the negotiation, performance and resolution of disputes arising out of a purchase and sale agreement for goods shipped from Asia to Europe. Students take courses relating to both topics.

The academic year begins at the end of August and is divided into four sessions with subsequent exam weeks. In the spring session, the students also complete an eight-week internship. The summer session includes a Master’s thesis phase, a capstone course to consolidate the different aspects of the program and a one-week social project. This last program component reflects our belief that future leaders must have not only an excellent academic background; they must also be ready to shoulder responsibility in the societies in which they live. Graduation takes place in the end of August/beginning of September.

The Program draws on the faculty resources of both Bucerius Law School and WHU and brings in adjunct professors from the practicing legal and business communities. Instruction is internationally and comparatively oriented; the teaching style is characterized by open dialogue and intensive support of students by faculty members.

MLB Program staff actively support participants in obtaining a suitable internship as well as in taking care of accommodation and insurance needs.

In the 2011-22 academic year, some 48 students from 33 countries study in the MLB Program.
