Best Business Law Degree in Europe


Hi everyone, I was wondering what is the best Business or Competition Law programme in Europe. I'd prefer mainland Europe since it's less expensive than UK or overseas. I am mainly looking for a programme which provides the best working opportunities afterwards (I need to recoup the costs of the programme within maximum 3 years).
Thanks!

Hey NewHereToo, here's an overview over top 10 Competition Law degrees (https://llm-guide.com/lists/speciality/top-llm-programs-for-competition-law) but if you leave out US and UK you basically end up with FU Berlin or Belgium.

College of Europe is quite pricey so you end up with:
- MBL prorgamme at FU Berlin (https://llm-guide.com/schools/europe/germany/fu-berlin-institute-for-german-and-european-business-competition-and-regulatory-law)
- Brussels School of Competition (https://llm-guide.com/schools/europe/belgium/brussels-school-of-competition-bsc)
- ECIP at University of Liège (https://llm-guide.com/schools/europe/belgium/university-of-liege-liege-competition-and-innovation-institute)

I guess your decision depends on the programme, the city (urban as Berlin and Brussels or rather smaller) and your country preferences.

Hi NewHereToo and Hi 00285, I'm glad to see that we're in your top 3 for best Business and Competition Law programmes. Since you mentioned the cost of education and working opportunities, I would suggest to take the overall cost into account: Tuition + living expenses. Here, smaller towns tend to be cheaper (though not always!) than cities, but even among cities there can be differences. Berlin, for instance, is slightly cheaper than Brussels (https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/comparison/berlin/brussels/). When it comes to job perspectives, having a look at the Alumni and testimonials can be a good resource. You can find testimonials from our prorgamme here (http://www.jura.fu-berlin.de/en/studium/masterstudiengaenge/mbl-fu/alumni/testimonials/index.html) and we stay in touch with our Alumni. The vast majority continues to work for the industry (usually in business law firms or the legal departments of multinational companies) but we also have students who pursued a PhD, went to work for their national competition authorities or become judges. In this regard, a broad programme offers many options.
Best,
MBL-FU

That's quite useful information. I was hoping for a few more replies, any other suggestions?
Thansk again!
