The LLM. in Intellectual Property produced in more than twenty years over 700 graduates from 95 countries.

Each year, a networking event bringing together current participants with the programme’s alumni is organized during the residential part of the LL.M.in IP back-to-back with the Annual Conference.

The LLM was the best academic experience I have ever had because it was a multinational and multicultural group of students, and I wasn’t the only engineer in the program either!
The LL.M. gave me a competitive edge over other candidates because of the international experience and the fact that my IP knowledge encompasses a global perspective which is needed for the role. In my day-to-day work, the knowledge I gained about the international IP regulatory landscape like the PCT, through the program is key in enabling me to assess the ownership and value of a patent, which is an essential step in helping MTN maintain its position as a pacesetter in Nigeria and Africa. Eventually, I want to be at the forefront of policy in Africa that favors locally-grown technology, which can incentivize innovation and enhance the future of the region.

It was a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world at the ITC-ILO Campus in Turin, and it also enabled me to develop a resourceful professional network which is very helpful to have. Academically, the LL.M. added value to my CV and gave me a plethora of technical knowledge on IP, as it is a technically excellent program.
