You are currently viewing European Regulations – Which economic regulations apply to companies in the EU ?

The European Union has many different regulations, for example with regard to importing and exporting goods, accounting regulations or even tools for overcoming the coronavirus crisis. What these are and what they mean for successful management is taught in the course by Prof. JUDr. Daniela A. Heid, Ph.D..

Prof. Heid is a lecturer at numerous institutions such as the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) in Maastricht, various federal authorities, an expert witness and a professor at the Federal University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration in Brühl (Cologne). Her main areas of practice are European law, civil service law, Czech law and national and international police law.

M2-2 European Regulations

The course introduces the legal framework and the basic economic provisions of the EU. The operating approach is a mix of stand-up teaching for the more technical and theoretical subjects, and a series of case studies on topics which are particularly relevant to the business community: the basic legal principles of cooperation and harmonization in the European Union, the four freedoms in the Internal Market and, mainly, competition law in the meaning of mergers, cartels, abuse of dominant positions as well as the European state aid control system and relevant provisions.

Students say:
“A particular enjoyment was the fact that the course was well structured. A lot of different legal subjects needed to be covered and they are separated clearly and nicely, while at the same time they supplemented each other. Also, the issues that were raised with questions and the case study sparked a lot of interesting conversations. All in all, even if the class was in an electronic form, it was done properly.” (ST 2019/20)
