B.Sc. in Business Law

Distance Learning (3 years) 

 

Our Bachelor in Business Law introduces students to the theory and practice of international business regulation in the context of globalisation. Living in a highly-legalised business world means than all business leaders must have a good grasp of the varied – and sometimes conflicting – legal contexts in which their companies operate.
 
Pursuing this innovative course, designed by renowned business and legal specialists, gives students the knowledge and skills required to understand Business Law. It equips students with the necessary and essential legal expertise necessary to operate in a global legalistic environment.
 
At the same time, as a Law degree, the CIM (BVI) Bachelor in Business Law will foster critical and analytic skills. By the end of the course, students form reasoned arguments and communicate in legal terms effectively, developing individuals ready for a career in industry, commerce, diplomacy or legal practice.
