After the completion of one year in Madrid, students will receive the BU J.D. and an LL.M. in International and European Business Law from ICADE.

Students in the program complete a full year of study at ICADE. The structured program—borne out of ICADE’s worldwide reputation for business studies—focuses on the institutional framework for EU business affairs, EU and international business regulation, EU market regulation and international and EU legal practice and enforcement.

The program focuses on the institutional framework for EU business affairs, EU and international business regulation, EU market regulation and international and EU legal practice and enforcement.
