This exciting business program lets students experience the beautiful and historic city of Prague while earning credit at the University of Economics. The University of Economics was founded in 1919 and is accredited by the Czech ministry of education. The program provides studies in the economies, societies and cultures of Central and East European countries. The courses include business practicalities, marketing, history and culture. Students can choose to study four to five courses.

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 thee Czech Republic and to get know Czech culture and habits.
