The master’s degree in Law, Digital Innovation and Sustainability equips experts in innovation – and in particular, students with a legal or managerial background – with the instruments necessary to interpret the current digital and ecological transitions in society and the economy, offering them a solid legal background with equally strong interdisciplinary, managerial and technical knowledge.
Welcome to apply for the program are those holding bachelor’s degrees in Law, followed by those with bachelor’s degrees in other social sciences (including Economics and Finance, Business and Management, Political Science, Sociology, Urban and Regional Studies, etc.) and graduates of bachelor’s programs in STEM and Life Sciences (Civil Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Engineering, Medicine, Physics, Biology, etc.)In the first year, all students will follow the same courses on law, economics, politics and technology. In the second year, students choose between three different tracks: Digitalization, Sustainability and an individual study plan that offers the opportunity to select courses from the other two tracks. Pre-course leveling (economics, law, technology, language) will determine if students require additional studies before beginning the first year of courses.

QTEM Masters Network
After a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Management, I enrolled in the Master’s program in Finance and participated in QTEM, an amazing experience both at an academic level and at a personal level, which helped me develop useful skills for the future market.
I now live in Frankfurt, where I work as an analyst in the Finance Directorate of the European Central Bank, dealing with budgeting, strategic planning, project governance and management reporting. In the future I’d like to continue this career in large-scale international institutions.
