European Union Week 2018

14 May 2018 - 3:00 pm - 17 May 2018 - 7:30 pm

The European Union’s diversity is a strength, but also poses challenges. Member states differ with respect to their economic and political situation, and have partly diverging views on what should be the EU’s competence and policies. Citizens should understand these different perspectives, and politicians need to find consensus, if the European Union is to fill its role as a major global player.

TUM School of Management dedicates the third week of May, 2018, to the European Union. A string of events shall inform about the European Union, address current topics, and revive enthusiasm for the European idea.
