Study Law and Business

Gain skills and knowledge from the best in both worlds with our Joint Honours Law and Business programmes, based at our Penryn Campus in Cornwall.

It’s been wonderful to collaborate so closely with our colleagues in the Business School to build this portfolio of programmes which bring together the best of both our worlds. We’re now looking forward to delivering a qualifying law and business programme, which nurtures and develops the abilities of each of our students.

Our collaboration with the University of Exeter Business School

Our collaboration with the University of Exeter Business School is unique to the Penryn Campus. Our Law and Business programmes align with the Exeter Business School's mission to deliver outstanding and innovative business education and research that address the major challenges confronting businesses and society.

Our innovative Law and Business programmes are co-delivered by both the Exeter Law School and the Exeter Business School and are truly interdisciplinary. They blend together law and business in ways which encourage students to learn how law influences business and business influences law. Upon completion our students will be better equipped to understand how law and business work, but also how business and law can work together better. The emphasis on content, skills, and collaboration that runs through our programmes is potentially powerful and transformative. And it has attracted an exceptionally diverse and talented cohort of students for our first year of delivery.
