The European Union is essential for peace and prosperity on the continent. Nevertheless, the EU is increasingly questioned in recent times. Therefore, the TUM School of Management will hold the first ‘European Week’ from July 3 to 7 to discuss the benefits, but also the weaknesses of the EU - and to revive enthusiasm for the European idea.
