The Master’s Programme in Law (MLaw) has a profile of its own and utilises a new training concept. It continues the legal education that was begun in the Assessment Year and pursued further at the Bachelor’s Level, and it concludes with the award of the degree of a Master of Arts HSG in Law. The MLaw is aimed at graduates who will later be admitted to the Bar. It is primarily geared to Swiss legal practice and provides a demanding generalist legal education. The high percentage of elective courses also enables our students to set their own priorities in line with their personal and professional interests.


The HSG has earned the EQUIS (2001) and AACSB (2003) accreditations and consequently has obtained the two most demanding international seals of approval for business schools.

In the 2016 Financial Times Global Masters in Management Ranking we are in 1st place with the Master in Strategy and International Management. Our Master in Banking and Finance is ranked 8th in the Financial Times Masters in Finance Ranking.
