What is our approach?The following is how ECCEDU Summer Program works:

Bridge the gap between academic knowledge and real-life applications

ECCEDU was established to provide a long-term solution to the inadequate practices of obsolete education systems and to the excessively theoretical nature of career consulting.

 

We bridge the gap between academic knowledge and real-life experience all the while strengthening the theoretical foothold universities provide. We believe that the combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills is an essential prerequisite for the students to become successful in their chosen fields. 

 

Our two-month-long Global Career Summer Programs + Internships are focused on Law, International Business, and Architecture. The programs consist of three weeks of intensive practical courses and four weeks of internship in one of 350 international companies across the Schengen Area.

Experience and Inspiration

Each summer, for three weeks, we teach our students 30 practical topics that are rarely present in academic curriculums. These 30 topics are covered by 30 different active professionals who are considered experts in their fields.

 

Among them are: Radek Špicar (President, Aspen Institute), Radka Dohnalová (Founder and owner, Harvard Uni Graduate, Atairu), Leoš Dvořák (Head of Digitalization, Valeo), Václav Nekvapil (Managing Partner, CEC Government Relations), Klára Sommerová (Co-founder and leader, (S)právně), Miroslav Černý (Coordinator of Intellectual Property Department, ŠKODA AUTO a.s), Petra Hrušková (Manager, Global TA Operations at Red Hat), Pavlína Louženská (Business & Innovation Strategist, 2FRESH Prague) and many others.

 

Every year, we select these 30 topics very carefully to make sure that they stay relevant and are not covered by the university. We also realize the importance of improving students’ soft skills, which are just as important as professional knowledge and equally sidelined at university. When thinking about and setting up the schedule for our students we always follow two core values - Experience and Inspiration.

Real working environment

ECCEDU programs are not only about spending time in the classroom. After three weeks of intensive practical courses, our students get a chance to use and improve their freshly-acquired knowledge in a real working environment by going on a four-week-long internship at one of the top-tier companies operating in their sector.

 

We can count on companies like Siemens, UniCredit Bank, T-Mobile, Lego, or law firms such as DLA Piper, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Linklaters, Bird & Bird, and many others to provide our students with valuable experiences, skills, and know-how.

 

All our partners are well aware of the huge gap between traditional education and real-life situations; therefore, they gladly agreed to work together with ECCEDU to bridge that gap and to participate in preparing our students to become successful future leaders and well-recognized experts in their fields.
