Practical relevance

The LL.M. finance program's curriculum will enable you to gain both a theoretical understanding as well as a practical insight into the specific requirements of banks and corporations, international law firms, as well as accounting and auditing firms, the European Central Bank and Germany's Bundesbank. This is because in addition to outstanding academics, the majority of our faculty consists of top practitioners from the fields of law, banking, central banking and financial regulation.
