UPF Barcelona School of Management and the Institute of Economic Education and Research (I+E) in Argentina have launched the second edition of the Postgraduate Course in Economics and Finance for Lawyers, which is to begin this coming April in Buenos Aires. The program is aimed at professionals in the legal field who wish to specialize in economic and financial analysis, whether they are working in the public sector (i.e. for the executive, judicial or legislative authorities at different levels of the state structure), in business associations and chambers of commerce related to the legal field, or in private organizations. The course objective is to equip lawyers with specialist knowledge and tools related to economic and financial matters and thereby broaden their scope of professional activity.
The launch took place at the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange and coincided with the graduation ceremony for the 26 students from the first edition of the program.
