Digital technologies offer innovative companies enormous opportunities to bring their business ideas to market. This could be the integration of an online trading platform or the implementation of cryptocurrency (e.g. Bitcoin) as an accepted means of payment - these innovations not only pose practical questions, but also legal ones in particular. For legal advisory professions such as law firms or management consultancies, but also for economic actors, public authorities or interest groups, there is a concrete need for competence in the law of digitization.

This is exactly where the new Executive LL.M. program comes in and provides a decisive market and competitive advantage within two semesters. The part-time program deals with current and future challenges of digitization in companies and organizations from a legal perspective. Decision-makers and consultants in law-related professions will experience a business-related and practical "upgrade".

The advantage of the Digital Business & Tech Law Master's program at the Entrepreneurial School® can be found in its interactive and compact orientation as an online study program, which enables participants to combine their studies with their profession. The German language and a focus on Central Europe were deliberately chosen in order to provide executives and junior managers with in-depth and at the same time targeted further education in the European market.

Together with a high-level academic board, Lukas Staffler is responsible for the academic direction of the Master of Laws:"In order for the law to keep up with economic and social changes, it needs the creativity of motivated and dynamic legal advisors. The LL.M. program is designed to support and foster this creativity from an entrepreneurial and practice-oriented perspective," he summarizes the new study program.

Susanne E. Herzog, Head of Executive Education at MCI, describes the positioning of the program in terms of content: "The entire program is characterized by an entrepreneurial spirit. Within two semesters, students become pioneers of digital transformation and acquire key competencies in digitization and law to support companies and organizations in their diverse challenges of the digital age."

MCI Rector Andreas Altmann adds, "The newly developed Executive LL.M. is based on MCI's more than 20 years of expertise in executive education and training. Working students want an LL.M. program that promotes career development and prepares them for digital challenges in a dynamic environment."

The new Master of Laws will be offered at MCI, which positions itself as an Entrepreneurial School® and is the holder of international AACSB accreditation.
The program starts in November 2021. Applications are already accepted.
