|General presentation||Organised jointly by the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration and the Faculty of Business and Economics (HEC Lausanne), this programme is intended to supplement initial training in law and/or economics with an interdisciplinary approach, allowing students from each of these two fields to acquire a thorough knowledge of the other discipline. The programme offers two alternative special subjects: one focused on management, corporate law and taxation, the other on interactions between law and economics.
There is a manifest need for professionals who can combine a thorough knowledge of law with a good understanding of economics. At a time when transversal skills are increasingly important, the Masters offers law students and economics students the possibility of acquiring knowledge relevant to different economic sectors of the world of business.
The MDE focuses primarily on commercial and financial law, corporate management and taxation; in addition to these central themes, it offers a large degree of flexibility in the choice of courses according to students' interests.
