Experience US American style teaching by renowned professors from leading universities while staying in Basel!

The Summer School offers students a unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the subjects of Business, Law and Economic Policy with an interdisciplinary and intercultural perspective. Lead by renowned professors from Georgetown University, New York University and Yale University, the Summer School aims to help its students/participants better understand how the US and Europe take different approaches in tackling societal and business-related problems. As a consequence it is studied, how legal frameworks, policies and regulations differ to address these problems.

Thanks to the generosity of two private sponsors, students enrolled at the University of Basel do not have to pay additional tuition to participate in the Summer School program. In order to benefit fully commitment, engagement and active participation in lectures are required.


Very enthusiastic instructor. Interesting and stimulation topics.
