    I'm looking to study a masters qualification and I am a bit lost to what I could study that would be of significant benefit and advantage towards my career.

    My undergraduate degree in business management rules out studying for an MBA as I have already covered all of this minus the 'post-experience' tasks they'd make me do during the course. Studying for a M.Sc. Economics / Marketing / Accounting / Finance would not be too great as I have covered all of this and feel I could do just as well without. Additionally business courses are in more demand and are more expensive, 10-12k where as other masters courses are 6-8k.

    I am thinking studying an LL.M. with possible specialism in corporate law.

    These are some modules that would be of interest:

    Company Law; UK Corporate Governance; Domestic Sales of Goods, Law of; Partnership and LLP Law; Public Contract Law, Regulation of Financial Markets; Insolvency Law; Law of E-Commerce.

    There is a lot that would help a manager understand a business better.

    I want to go onto a career in management and I am also interested in working in a legal practice in treasury or marketing etc.

    Does anyone have an opinion on this and some wisdom to if this is a good idea?

    i think its a very interesting route, given that I'm doing something similar. i hold a zoology degree but have worked in finance since 1998. I decided to pursue a LLM Qualifying Law degree ( basically a LLB degree for graduates. Upon graduation, i intend to either pursue the LPC to become a Solicitor or to go onto completing an MBA. I presume that you are sill in your 20's. However the first thing you need to decide is what you would like to concentrate on - Law or Business. If you decide to go the Legal route, then you can specialise in Corporate Law , M& A- you will find that your business degree will come in handy. If you decide your preference is on the business side, you can still undertake the LLM but be sure to get a professional business qualification such as the ACA/ ACCA/ CFA as these may give you a wider choice to move between various industries. This becomes more important given that they are no jobs for life. In essence , a grounding in Law, Business ( ACCA) and IT will serve you well in your professional life.
