About the university: Founded in 1999 by the Universities of Bern, Fribourg and Neuchâtel in Switzerland and now fully anchored in the Faculty of Law of the University of Bern, the World Trade Institute (WTI) is dedicated to capacity building and raising global awareness of international economic law and economics. The WTI provides graduate studies and a forum for interdisciplinary research and teaching in these fields. The Master of International Law and Economics (MILE) is the flagship programme of the WTI, established in 1999. Since 2005, the WTI has been designated as a Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) in Trade Regulation. Current research network activities include a cooperation scheme with universities in five developing countries and a number of leading institutions in the developed world, regular informal brown bag lectures and the annual World Trade Forum conference. Faculty members include nearly 60 lecturers drawn from international organisations, leading law practices, the corporate sector and academia. Some 50 researchers and administrative staff work within the institute.

Courses offered:

  • The MILE programme provides weekly modules focused on trade and development, which can be attended on an à la carte basis.
  • The Doctoral Programme offers Master’s-level graduates in economics, political science and law the opportunity to further their professional and academic careers.
  • Summer Academy - Students attending all five weeks of the yearly Summer Academy and satisfactorily passing an exam can earn 10 ECTS credits from their home country academic institutions.

Areas of expertise: As part of the Swiss-funded research network, NCCR Trade Regulation, an exhaustive array of research activities in trade and international economic governance take place, structured into the following modules: Trade Governance; New Preferentialism in Trade; Innovation and Competitiveness in Trade Governance; Trade and the Diffusion of Migration Law, Policy and Economics; Trade and Climate Change; Impact Assessment in International Trade Regulation.
