Master Degree in "Legal and Economic Framework of Business in the EU"

Welcome to the Postgraduate Professional Studies in „Legal and Economic Framework of Business in the EU"!

Since accession of the Republic of Croatia to the European Union, Croatia needs professionals who know and understand how that international organization operates. Contemporary experts in European affairs and the institutions must have the knowledge and skills of European law and economics, and this is exactly what this Master course offers.

Ability of communication in the European market provides the advantages to the personal progress in one's career in the institutions of the European Union and Croatia. Furthermore, European standards and criteria are already applied in business and institutional activities in the domestic and international affairs, but they are insufficiently understood and known. Therefore we invite you to join this Master programme.
