Effective leaders need to be able to make informed, strategic decisions that meet organizational objectives, and implement the appropriate preventative measures to mitigate risk. An essential understanding of the legal landscape will help you recognize high-risk corporate behavior, while providing certainty and stability, and serving as a mechanism to resolve disputes.

The Legal Strategy for Business online program from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University is intended for professionals who want to understand the essentials of business law in order to become more effective, well-rounded leaders. A background in law is not required or expected.

Whether your organization is based in, or does business with the United States, you’ll develop the legal literacy required to operate within its complex regulatory landscape. This executive education program will provide you with a foundational knowledge of United States business laws and regulations, as well as the expertise required to interpret and navigate them. You’ll also develop a personalized strategic plan to help you identify how the law can be used as a powerful business tool.

5-7 hours of self-paced learning per week, entirely online, with access to instructors.
