I strongly recommend the Executive Master to anyone with a serious interest in understanding the applicable international legal frameworks regulating armed conflict. I particularly enjoyed the high-quality teaching as well as working, studying and interacting every week with a group of highly motivated, diverse and experienced fellow students from all sectors and different parts of the world.
