Extra Actvities

The programme of the Master of Science in European Economy and Business Law endeavours to foster students’ academic, professional and personal growth, hence it includes the requirement for students to earn 6 credits (ECTS) through the completion of an extra activity that can further enrich their academic experience and additionally prepare students for their future in professional spheres. The available activities are of diverse nature in order to provide students with an adequate range of projects and interests from which they can choose. Opportunites range from specific courses offered by EEBL, language certification, internships and other experiences. Students should note that all of the activities must be initiated and completed during the course of the MSc. degree programme and be pre-approved by the EEBL Programme Office.
