New IEF Program in Cooperation with UPCES

UPCES is pleased to announce the new International Economic and Finance (IEF) program. IEF is a study abroad program specially designed for economics, finance, and business students who seek a challenging and rewarding semester of study in Prague.

Students on the IEF program will encounter an impressive curriculum of economics, finance, policy, and management courses offered directly by the Institute of Economic Studies (IES) of Charles University. IES is the #1 ranked undergraduate economics and finance center in the Czech Republic and a worldwide leader in educational excellence.

In addition to the immersive classroom environment, the IEF program will include a number of co-curricular visits to financial institutions, businesses, and manufacturing operations, as well as guest speakers by industry experts. Internship opportunities will be available to qualified students to further enhance the semester experience.

In cooperation with UPCES, IEF students will choose two UPCES courses (one humanities course plus a Czech language course) and participate in weekly events, activities, and trips organized by UPCES. The IEF program also cooperates with UPCES to guarantee the highest standards of student support and cultural opportunities.
