The BU Law Executive LLM in International Business Law Program brings together a global network of accomplished professionals from a broad range of legal practices, industries, and businesses. The program’s unique blended learning format combines two-week residency sessions in Boston and/or Budapest with online instruction, offering a level of flexibility that’s ideal for busy practitioners who seek advanced expertise but cannot attend a traditional nine-month residential program. Students also have the option to take certain classes fully online. The LLM can be completed either through blended courses, all-online courses, or a combination of both. The program is designed to provide you with a variety of scheduling options, and its courses are available both through the Executive LLM degree as well as through two certificates.

You’ll learn the key doctrines of international business practice from the US perspective—taught by members of BU Law’s regular teaching faculty—while you expand your international connections. BU Law’s Executive LLM Program offers an uncompromising executive experience: world-class training for cross-border work, delivered conveniently and flexibly by America’s top-ranked faculty.


BU Law is fully ABA-accredited.
