Each field of the european life is concerned : the agriculture, the business, the health, the environment, the movement of persons... Managing company or dealing in the European market requires a deep understanding of the European Union system. Hundreds jobs are also created every year directly in the institutions (the Parliament, the European Commission, the Court of justice...). Indirectly, there are more than thousand new jobs, in other worldwide institutions and in the business companies, linked with the European Union. In the public or the private field of the economic life, the European Union takes an important place.
