About International Business Law: Transactions and Trade at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam benefits from its unique location in the heart of Amsterdam's business district, where many international law firms are located. As a student of the master International Business Law (IBL), you will be able to network in a real-life business environment. Some courses are taught by legal practitioners, who can give you a genuine understanding of how law works in practice. Classes are relatively small, international and interactive. The mix of nationalities within the group gives the IBL programme an extra dimension.


The Master's programme in International Business Law consists of three mandatory courses, i.e. International Contract Law, International Company Law and a Research Seminar, elective courses, and a Master's thesis. Students must opt for one specialization (you must opt for the profile 'Transactions' or

the profile 'Regulatory'). The mandatory courses provide you with a general legal foundation, while later elective courses focus on more specific areas of international business law. In the final stage, you will write a Master's thesis. The IBL programme focuses on rules and practices for promoting international commercial transactions. It also aims at developing an understanding of the world's trading system and rules for international investments, and it examines the legal aspects of business practices. You will study the main legal areas and the interaction between the actors involved in transactions. In addition, you will develop skills to anticipate, analyse and address problems that may arise in your future career: the legal practice of international business.
