Course content

In these interesting times where globalisation and disenfranchisement of established political, social and legal order are taking place across domestic, regional and global economic and trade sectors, conducting business internationally is becoming fraught with increasingly conflicting set of rules, agreements, regulations and practices. The constantly shifting landscape means that domestic businesses as well as those that operate transnationally needs administrators and managers who are able to understand, plan and implement strategies and practices that meets their specific needs.

To understand global interconnectedness of economies, markets and industries within which transnational corporations compete, an individual would require a high degree of knowledge and understanding of the municipal, regional and international customs, practices and laws. Such an individual would also require a certain set of communication skills to draft, present, negotiate, moot and write in a disciplined way.

LLM International Business programme therefore aims to provide such knowledge and understanding as well as the skills to non- law graduates especially those with business and management backgrounds as well as those with law degrees through an advanced study and assessment of laws within subject areas and issues that are rooted in the international business and management environment.

The programme is therefore designed to equip students to develop the understanding of concepts and theories, stimulate critical thinking and resolve legal disputes from a multidisciplinary perspective. The programme also offers students the opportunity to reflect on their own knowledge, experience and industry practice, particularly through peer interaction.
