Students can choose to follow one of three different tracks in the EMLE programme: the ‘Economic Analysis of Markets, Corporations & regulators track’ (MCR), the ‘Economic Analysis of Public & International Law track’ (Public), and the ‘Economic Analysis of Innovation and Intellectual Property track’ (IP). While in the first term the courses are the same across all tracks and Universities, specialization starts in the second term with two specialized courses per track and three courses that will be the same across the different tracks and University partners. The third term finalizes the chosen specialization with two courses that are unique to the chosen track and university, and the final thesis written under supervision of a professor from the third term University. Below you can find more information about the courses of each of the tracks. For a visual overview of the structure, please click here.
Students are not obliged to follow a track but will earn a certificate if they do so. If students decide not to follow a track, they may choose the universities to study at freely, always based on availability of spots per University. In this, however, they need to follow the general mobility rules of the programme: all students need to study at least at two different European universities. Therefore, students who wish to study at either Haifa or Mumbai, our two non-European partners, will have to choose two other European partners to spend their EMLE year. It is therefore not possible to study both at Haifa and Mumbai during the year, and likewise, it is both not possible to spend the first term in Haifa followed by two terms in Hamburg, or also spending the two first terms at the same European partner (e.g. Rotterdam or Hamburg) to go to Mumbai in the third term.
