Course content and structure

The legal framework more and more influences the reality of cross-border business in the service sector. This course aims at providing students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills useful for analysing the dynamics and consequences of this interaction, by focusing on legal aspects of international business activities and international service management.

The course provides a number of legal parameters and tools for students of international service management. Areas include contract law and international business law and the students will gain an understanding of the main elements of legal contract management and relate it to a real service firm. The relationship between theory and practice will be achieved by integrating the knowledge provided in the course to specific cases of real service corporations. Through its learning activities and assessment this course enhances competencies of problem solving, team work, writing and presenting academic reports for an expert audience, the coordination of project activities and the application of knowledge to practice.
