The legal basis for the organisation of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree EGEI is written down in the ‘Partnership Agreement'. The agreement organises the main aspects of everyday co-operation: competences of the Joint Studies Board, financing, quality assurance mechanisms, delivery of diplomas, etc. 

The University of Antwerp ensures the overall co-ordination and acts as contact person for the European Commission. At each partner university, the programme is managed by a local academic co-ordinator, mostly assisted by one or more administrative collaborators.
