4 pillars


The importance of finance in business and institutional decisions and their constantly evolving relationship with the field of law poses law practitioners a challenge to perform not only regarding statutory considerations but also in the field of finance. The professional contribution they can make by also contributing a financial viewpoint will further enhance productivity by providing a view aligned with organizations' economic and financial goals.

Given this challenge, Universidad ESAN chose to give law practitioners as well as other professionals outside the field of finance, in both government and industry, the option to work toward a Master's Degree in Corporate Finance and Law that will expand their fields of action and provide them with more tools for analysis and debate, leading to stronger business and organizational decisions.

ESAN has been awarded further international recognition thanks to its institutional strength and high level educational programs.
