STUDENTS EXPERIENCE
Ina Katamadze, student from Georgia:

I really enjoy my Master’s programme in European and International Business Law, it consists of very interesting subjects. I like the way of studying here, lecturers are great professionals in their field and friendly at the same time. Very often we have guest professors from different countries or local successful lawyers, who lecture in practical way or manage some debates about specific issues.
I enjoy library and its atmosphere, you can study there whenever you want, even at midnight.
My chosen study programme is joint with University of Savoie Mont Blanc, and I am looking forward to spend my third semester living and studying in France! After graduation, I’m going to receive both university’s diplomas.
 

Martynas and Monika, first graduates of the programme:

As former students of the “European and International Business Law” programme, we are first of all grateful to the lecturers of the programme that made our studies both challenging and yet very rewarding. Also special thanks should be given to fellow students and administrative staff of the university. The extensive theoretical and practical knowledge that we have gained during studies in this programme would facilitate our future careers in legal area.
