MSc International Law and Business


Course Description

The programme offers students with undergraduate qualifications in both Law and Business (also including economics or finance) the opportunity for advanced study in both disciplines. The Programme will be led by the McCann FitzGerald Professor of International Law Business, established with the generous sponsorship of leading Dublin law firm McCann Fitzgerald.

In the programme there are two core modules which link Law and Business from both a theoretical and applied perspective and in their international context. There is the opportunity to take four elective modules across the two disciplines and the programme is completed by a capstone project. On completion, students will have developed critical thinking abilities not only on the development of and relationship between the two disciplines, but also on the application of the knowledge to the worlds of law and business.

Globalisation has made it necessary to have a sound knowledge of international law and business, whether you wish to join a major law firm or be engaged in a company with european and international aspirations.

This interdisciplinary programme promotes critical analysis of different aspects of international law and business, and is directed at well-qualified graduates in law, business and associated disciplines.

(Student Profile)

Niamh Gallagher

The MSc International Law and Business programme sets UCD apart from other universities for me, as it is the only interdisciplinary
programme available at postgraduate level. The hugely important link between law and business is becoming more predominant in light of the number of multinational companies doing business in Ireland. I chose this programme to equip myself with the academic and practical skills required of commercial lawyers working in international firms. The subjects offered complement each other well and allow students to develop a practical knowledge of key areas of international law and business. Small class sizes resulted in an
interactive and friendly learning environment. I am confident that the knowledge I have acquired will be hugely advantageous as I embark on my professional training. The project module allows students to identify an area of interest and carry out practical research
in a professional service firm. This is a fantastic opportunity that graduates with a genuine interest in law and business will not find elsewhere.’
