Program description

Masters in International Business Law: Climate Change and Sustainabilty

How does the law facilitate sustainability? What rights and responsibilities do businesses, governments and NGOs have in addressing the issues of climate change? Can states be forced to bring their policies in line with the Paris 2015 Agreement?

VU Amsterdam is the first university in Europe to offer a specific International Business Law degree that combines an outstanding, all-round Master’s in Business Law with a specific focus on one of the most complex legal challenges of our day: sustainability. It took some time for the corporate world to acknowledge the existential threat to mankind that climate change poses. But now, sustainability goes hand-in-hand with business success – and business survival. VU Amsterdam will help you become a lawyer in high demand, in both the public and private sector.
