At the heart of International Business Law
Did you know that Switzerland plays a key role in international business law?
It hosts many international organisations, such as the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation, and the World Intellectual Property Organisation, and is also one of the most important locations in the world for commodity trading, arbitration, banking and financial services.
By hosting the headquarters of hundreds of the largest multinational companies in diverse sectors such as the food industry, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, watch industry, banking, financial services, information and communication technologies, and the machine industry; Fribourg becomes the best location for future legal practitioners.
Studying at their bilingual, international, central and friendly campus, you’ll be just one-hour away from the centres of international trade in Geneva, Zurich and Basel, learning at the only university in Switzerland where students have the chance to study in French, German or both!
