The teaching module “Liberalization, Privatization and European Integration” is co-funded by the Erasmus+Programme of the European Union.The teaching module consists of two courses: (1) Liberalization of Markets and European Integration and (2) Privatization of Firms and Banks and European Integration.

The course “Privatization of Firms and Banks and European Integration” focuses on privatization and European integration with a special emphasis on countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
