The wide range of European Union (EU) activities
together with an increasing number of EU Member States render EU-related
competence a key asset, if not a must, in any professional career. But how does
the EU work? How are European rules adopted and by whom? What is the legal
effect of EU rules and how do they relate to national ones?
The course provides for both a critical theoretical analysis and a practitioner’s view of the EU in general and its law-making process in particular.
A MODUL University professional seminar is divided into three sections, allowing for maximum flexibility.

- Core-Module phase: a two day seminar on MU Vienna’s campus
- Post-Module phase: a 2-4 week e-learning period where participants are required to complete a project or paper at home
Total course time is approximately one month, while the required on-campus seminar time is two days.
