"I think long-term, the best business people, leaders I know, are well-versed in law. Unless you just wanted to do trading, you ought to think about both law and business.
The job prospects and possibilities for advancement are strong, whether you choose to work in finance, business consulting, marketing and sales, strategy, or other areas with applications in both business and law.”
Prof. David E. Van Zandt,
Ranked among the top 10 universities in the U.S.

"I am an MBA in Finance and a project and infrastructure finance professional. My job entails bidding and financing of various infrastructure projects on a public-private partnership basis with various central and state government agencies in the areas of Roads, Railways, Airports, Oil/Gas/Slurry Pipelines and Urban Infrastructure. I have been responsible for bidding of infrastructure assets worth more than Rs. 10,000 crores and have arranged for financing of infrastructure assets worth Rs. 7,000 crores.
I need to assess contractual and financial risks for project related and financing agreements on a regular basis. Also, structuring arrangements with Private Equity Investors, Government Agencies, Stock Exchanges/FIs and Indian/Foreign JV partners is a part and parcel of the activities of our business. Knowledge of business and securities law is a big asset at my workplace, as it facilitates seamless progression of activities without over-dependence on external/internal legal consultants, who often offer advice only from a purely legal perspective.
This course has been a perfect fit for my requirement of a flexible, technology enabled course on business laws from a reputed university. It allows me to access materials on the go and study as per my own pace, enabling me to balance my hectic work and family schedules without sacrificing on study time. The course content is quite relevant and has helped my confidence while working on legal/contractualmatters, across the table with various legal professionals and government officials."
