From private equity funds to how banks lend, you’ll build a solid knowledge of modern day commercial law on our enlightening course. We mix traditional learning with interactive sessions for a fulfilling experience packed with variety.
Witness a private equity fund making transactions in real life, visit a bank and check out their lending process with real customers and speak to accountants and lawyers about their part in the process. To complete the course, you’ll go through the process of buying a company and seek expert feedback – a chance to really showcase your new skills!
On our project-based courses, you will work on a group project which is defined by your tutor and based on a complex real-life problem. Each course will have a theme which connects all subjects, to encourage collaboration between groups and peer feedback. In taught sessions, your tutor will equip you with the practical subject knowledge required to address the problem you have been assigned, and you will take ownership of your project during group work facilitated by teaching assistants. To learn from industry experts, you will also visit companies, innovators, and experts to immerse you in the current issues defining your subject area and the overall course theme. Your course will culminate in group presentation to peers, staff and external experts.
