Thus, the module's primary aim will be to understand international conventions and institutions relevant to international trade. The focus of the elective module LAW will be on practical and useful regulations, clauses and suggestions applicable to the everyday professional lives of managers, regardless of whether they work in a common- or civil-law environment.“

“By participating in this elective module SOCIOLOGY, students will learn about different classic sociological theories that try to explain human societies. We will examine the roles of 1) social networks; 2) social norms; and 3) social institutions in order to understand different ways through which sociologists try to explain how societies function. By referring to different examples of current societal challenges, such as climate change, conflicts, pandemics, demographic change, (forced) migration, as well as new ways of global communication and (dis)information, we will analyze how societies change over time and what this means for a sociological understanding of the world.”
