Bachelor of Economics – Program in English

21 Mar

In academic year 2014/2015, the Faculty of Economics (NF) at the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) again offers a bachelor degree program taught in English.  It is a full-time study program and the standard length of study is three years. The tuition fee is 1,800 EUR per semester.  In total, 43 students from 14 countries are enrolled in the first and second years of this program. In the next academic year, the program will have its first graduates.

The main objective of the program is to create qualified professional economists who will be able to jump into the public and private sectors nationally or internationally. These professionals will have a strong base in economics, legal sciences and other social disciplines with a special emphasis on international economics and politics. They will also gain a practical knowledge of English through constant, applicable use. With a sufficient and varied base, graduates from this program will be able to respond to the ever-changing and increasingly demanding requirements of business practices and labor markets, both nationally and internationally. The course is aimed at talented local and foreign students who want, above all, to continue in master’s programs and disciplines that are taught in English at the University of Economics, as well as students who want to continue their studies abroad. We can say from experience that students have the opportunity to study in a diverse group. Students will meet students from several different countries, and this socio-cultural aspect is quite enriching for students.
