Erasmus Mundus is indeed a prestigious program that aims to improve the quality of European higher education and strengthen intercultural understanding. The aim is to promote the European Union as an area of academic excellence worldwide, to contribute to the sustainable development of higher education in third countries and to offer students the best career prospects.
