Frequently Asked Questions

The legal framework governing businesses is constantly changing. However, understanding and utilising it as a value-added tool in making informed decisions, corporate planning and protecting business interests and rights is still uncommon. Corporations that fail to keep pace with the ever-changing norms and laws are more likely to encounter business risks and may be subject to civil and penal sanctions. To avoid legal difficulties and gain a competitive edge, companies are either looking for qualified legal professionals or, from the top down, demanding that managers enhance their skills and keep up with the ever-changing legal environment.

If you are a corporate manager, management consultant, corporate secretarial professional, corporate legal professional, legal counsel, qualified lawyer in the corporate law practice, CA & CS professional, or an entrepreneur (with work experience of at least 2 years) and wish to gain insights into advanced Business & Corporate Laws. In that case, this Programme can be your ideal next step. Besides exploring the strategic aspects of law and treating it as a value-added tool in business strategy, the programme will make you understand the law in business organisations. You'll also understand the legal environment prevalent in business operations and further help you manage the risk and plan strategies for competitive advantage.

EPBCL is designed to impart a comprehensive understanding of the legal environment in which national and international businesses operate. The programme curriculum is carefully chalked out into 6 advanced modules. Each module is focused on providing you with the necessary skills and thinking patterns so that you can easily understand the regulatory frameworks and can design the strategies and counter-strategies for competitive advantage. By the end of this 6-month programme you can be much better at formulating strategic decisions; leveraging toolkits to make informed decisions, devising corporate strategies without legal loopholes and implications and upgrading your knowledge with the latest and most important developments.
