The Central and East European Studies Program (CESP) is a free-mover self-financed program for students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels founded at the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) in 1992. CESP is an optional one or two semester program taught in English. The program focuses on issues in Central and East European economies, societies and cultures. Remarkable changes in Central and Eastern Europe have generated considerable interest in the economies and cultures of these nations. Many young people feel that it would be interesting and useful to know some basic facts about new economic doctrines in the region.

Cultural activities are included as well.

Classes take place at the VŠE campus and are taught in English by professional teachers and Czech business people working at the university or at other prominent organizations such as electricity conglomerate ČEZ, a.s. All courses have been fully accredited and reviewed by the Academic Accreditation Committee of VŠE. The program provides a certificate of accomplishment and an official transcript accredited by VŠE. Each course offered at CESP is worth of 7 ECTS credits.
