Program Overview

Program Description:
The Central and East European Studies Program at the Prague at University of Economics is taught in English, reviews the past and investigates the present and future of the developing economies, societies, politics, and languages of these countries. In the Fall and Spring semesters, students of the program also have the opportunity to register in several courses designed as a standard part of the University curriculum and taught in English (from fields such as finance, economics, marketing, trade, etc.). This will improve the students’ general academic background and, simultaneously, make it possible for them to immerse themselves in the community of Czech students at the University of Economics.

The aim of the program is to offer foreign students something they cannot receive from their home universities: the opportunity to reside in and experience the dynamic, exciting conditions in Central Europe through professional insight and instruction by native Czech professors and business professionals. The strategy of the program is to offer this objective through daily social interactions and course curriculum. When the students complete the program they will have accumulated a large amount of knowledge about Central and East European cultural attitudes and daily life. At the same time students can learn a lot about living in Central Europe, everyday life in the Czech Republic and to get know Czech culture and habits.

Students may enroll in four to five courses for 12-15 credit hours. All courses are worth three U.S. Credits.
