The University of Luxembourg (www.uni.lu) was created in August 2003. As one of the youngest European universities, the University of Luxembourg has the exciting opportunity to take advantage of the changing environment in higher education. Moreover, many students are attracted by the multicultural and trilingual country in the heart of Europe. The University's main focus is research. The degrees offered are mainly at Master's and doctoral level.

The University is composed of three faculties: the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication, the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance, and the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education. The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance offers, among other programmes, the following Masters:


Six highly specialised Master programmes focusing on European law (LL.M.)

Following on from the great success of its three Master programmes in European law, the University reshaped its offer and students can now choose from six distinct Master of Laws (LL.M.) programmes:
  • Master en Droit et Contentieux de l'Union Européenne (LL.M.)
  • Master en Droit Bancaire et Financier Européen (LL.M.)
  • Master in European Economic and Financial Criminal Law (LL.M.)
  • Master in European and International Tax Law (LL.M.)
  • Master in European Private Law (LL.M.)
  • Master in Space, Communication and Media Law (LL.M.)
Due to the long European tradition of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the proximity of several European institutions as well as Luxembourg's financial centre, the Master of Laws programmes are strongly oriented towards European, transnational and comparative law. Students will develop high-level research skills, which may lead to PhD studies, but also benefit from "real-life" application of their acquired knowledge, for example through their participation in international moot court competitions.

In several specialisations students are required to follow an internship. The teaching body consists of highly qualified professors from the University of Luxembourg and visiting professors from other universities as well as professionals from the European institutions and the legal profession.

This Master also offers the opportunity to later prepare for a doctorate (PhD). In the finance sector, strong complementarities exist between theoretical analysis tools and their professional applications. The aim of this programme is to help students adapt to the fast changing financial sector and to assimilate the tools resulting from the most recent research. In the second year students can choose between two tracks: the Academic and the Research Track.

Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation*

The Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation emerged out of a partnership between the University and the Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The programme is a two-year Master's degree offered to students with backgrounds in the traditional business disciplines, in other social sciences and in scientific disciplines (biology, physics or engineering for instance). This diversity is a strength for a programme aimed at encouraging curiosity and developing an entrepreneurial spirit. The course concept interweaves theory and practice. Experienced professors from different countries will present and discuss the managerial implications of the latest evidence from academic research and case studies. Experienced practitioners will bring their know-how and practical views, and discuss their problem-solving heuristics. Each approach will have its assumptions and contentions challenged and enriched by those of the other one, a dialogue which we believe to be essential for understanding entrepreneurship.

Programme details:
Degree: Master
Duration: 24 months
Annual tuition fee: Year 1: € 5,000 / Year 2: € 3,000
Educational variants: full-time
Language: English

Master in Accounting and Audit*

The Master in Accounting and Audit offers scientifically based in-depth knowledge of all specialist areas that are relevant to accounting and auditing practice, without neglecting the practical relevance of teaching content or the preparation of candidates for the job market. Students completing the degree course acquire the expertise to solve practical problems on a scientifically sound basis. Candidates aiming to obtain the professional qualification of "réviseur d'entreprises" will comprehensively have completed the theoretical stage of their training on a high academic level when they graduate.

This Master's programme offers advantages in terms of subsequently starting a professional or academic career, mainly because many relevant companies and important organisations are based in Luxembourg. Leading international accounting, auditing and tax firms maintain key branches in the Grand Duchy.

Programme details:
Degree: Master
Duration: 24 months
Annual tuition fee: € 3,200
