The role of law and compliance is steadily evolving from that of a supportive function within operational activities into one that determines framework conditions. In recent years, the business sections of the press have become increasingly dominated by reports about companies that have breached statutory or compliance rules. The business community is not only confronted by the challenges derived from the changes in general conditions caused by digitization, but also the need for continual adaptations and both of these factors have moved legal issues into the spotlight. Employees with an enhanced basic understanding of the law can make a significant contribution to company success, as they can point to legal risks and solution corridors in all thematic areas of relevance.

In this program, “DIGITAL INSIDE” support managers during the realization of the digital transformation of their companies on a legal level. The “Legal Framework Conditions in the Digital Age” module deals with the most pressing juridical questions emanating from technological changes such as data protection and intellectual property rights.



The spezialisation of the Business Law MBA is completed in cooperation with ARS –  Akademie für Recht, Steuern & Wirtschaft. The participants recieve a certificate of both ARS and LIMAK.
