The Master of International Law and Economics (MILE) Programme will prepare you for a rewarding career in international trade.
It is designed for students and young professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge of the law, economics and political economy of global commercial relations. A one-year, intensive graduate programme, the MILE brings together bright young people and leading experts from around the world. Taught and guided by over 50 faculty members, it is a great opportunity to acquire highly-applicable, real-world knowledge.
When you spend a year at the World Trade Institute in beautiful Bern, Switzerland, you'll meet like-minded young people for an unforgettable academic and personal experience. And upon graduation, you'll join the ever-growing network of alumni with all its benefits.
The MILE Programme contains 34 weekly courses in three terms. Due to the wide scope of materials covered, the amount of time spent in class is high when compared to other master programmes. Students will usually have five hours of classes a day, on four days per week.

Teaching methods of the MILE Programme reflect the preferences of individual members of the faculty. Weekly courses are based on lectures, case studies, classroom discussions, group workshops, and individual research in the various fields taught. Interdisciplinary work is at the core of our philosophy.
The Programme pays special attention to integrating economic and legal perspectives on international trade regulation - the core idea of the MILE Programme. Most weekly modules comprise a section taught by a legal practitioner or academic and another taught by an economist. Sometimes, both professors will teach jointly, alternatively they may teach back to back with one professor starting the week and the other finishing. The MILE Programme finishes off with a WTO Moot Court.
The students are given a one-day assessment each Friday based on the week's materials. Students are required to actively participate in the classroom, make presentations and discuss cases. Students will also work in conjunction with a tutor to design and research their master's thesis, which must be submitted by September 30.
