For Students

Our Approach and Global Career Summer Programs

ECCEDU was established to provide a long-term solution to the overly theoretical tendencies of university education and career consulting.


We bridge the gap between our student's academic knowledge and real-life experience, building upon the theoretical foothold universities provide. We believe that the combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills is an essential prerequisite for professional success. That's why we created our Global Career Summer Programs + Internships.


Our 2-month long Global Career Summer Programs + Internships are focused on Law, International Business, Architecture & Design, and IT.


The program consists of 3 weeks of intensive practical courses and 4 weeks of internship in one of the 350 international companies that partner with us in Europe or other global regions following the program selection of our students (mostly from the United States of America, the United Arab Emirates, and other regions.


Last year, we received over 850 applications from 60 countries around the world and welcomed about 200 students to spend a beautiful and meaningful summer in Prague. Due to its continuing success, ECCEDU plans to expand its Global Career Summer Programs to other regions of the world and we frequently try to accommodate the individual preferences of students when it comes to their internship needs.


What are our students thinking about? Check some testimonials from them

I always wanted to have an internship and I always wanted to be in a European Country. I thought this program was going to be some lectures and an internship, but when I saw the lecture - actually, they were really hard on my expectations. It was real-world applicable, practical, and I really loved it. I have some new ideas about my life. I didn't have a plan or career that I wanted to go into. I'm sure I want to be an international lawyer, but now I have new ideas.

If you are interested in some law lectures but are studying business, you can just swap. And just as well, I can take some architecture lectures too if I wanted. That was a good thing. I was also pleasantly surprised by the number of different activities and field trips that were offered to us during this program. There was a variety of different activities we could do, and they were good for everyone.

Experience and Inspiration

When designing and organizing the programs, we always follow two core values - Experience and Inspiration. Every summer, for 3 weeks, we teach our students 30 practical topics that rarely make it to academic curriculums. These 30 topics are covered by 30 different active professionals who are considered experts in their fields.


Every year, we select these 30 topics very carefully to make sure that they stay relevant. We also realize the importance of improving students' soft skills, which are just as valuable as professional knowledge, yet equally sidelined at university.


Among our speakers are Josef Hlaváček, Sales Team Lead, CEE, Facebook, Lukáš Zapletal, Executive Board Member, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, Rainier Schlatmann, CEO CEE, Philips, Antonio Nasuto, Director of Commercial Sales, IBM, Jiri Cerny, Head of Legal CEE, Tesco, Patrik Przyhoda, Partner, CMS, and many others.

Real working environment

ECCEDU programs are not only about spending time in the classroom, quite the opposite. After three weeks of intensive practical courses, our students get a chance to use and improve their freshly-acquired knowledge by going on a 4-week long internship in one of the top-tier companies operating in their sector.


We partner with companies like Siemens, UniCredit Bank, Lego, Coca-Cola, T-Mobile, law firms such as DLA Piper, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Linklaters, Bird & Bird, architecture studios such as Jestico + Whiles Architecture and Chapman Taylor Architects or prestigious information technology companies such as Red Hat, Y-Soft or HERE, as well as many others, to provide valuable experiences, skills, and know-how.


All our partners are well aware of the huge gap between traditional education and real-life situations. They very gladly and kindly agreed to work together with ECCEDU to bridge it and to prepare our students to become successful future leaders and well-recognized experts in their fields.
