International Business

Experience our renowned concept of Business in Context and participate in the Summer Program in International Business.
8.7.2019 - 23.8.2019



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

Concept of "Learning by Experience"

Comprehensive knowledge of one’s field is essential, but true leaders in business need to be able to apply that knowledge in practice. Our goal is to provide ECCE graduates with an extra advantage and help them stand out from their colleagues. The Program is awarded 4 ECTS credits for every successful graduate.

 

We want ECCE students to experience what it is like to work in the field of international business transactions and further enhance their skills, focusing both on their personal and professional development. Topics covered by the Summer Program on International Business in 2019 will be carefully selected to match the constantly changing world of business. Topics may differ slightly from each year.

Lectures & Lecturers

All of our lecturers are experts and pioneers in their field. They will engage with students during three weeks of intensive lectures. The scope of the lectures ranges from insights into current trends to the very essentials of business and commerce. ECCE lecturers are seasoned representatives from leading companies, both in the Czech Republic and worldwide. These include:

 

Radek Špicar (President, Aspen Institute), Radka Dohnalová (Founder and owner, Harvard Uni Graduate, Atairu), Leoš Dvořák (Head of Digitalization, Siemens Czech Republic), 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 (Staffing Business Partner, EMEA Emerging Markets, Google), Pavlína Louženská (Business & Innovation Strategist, 2FRESH Prague) and many others.

Internships

Our internships are just the right experience and will drive the students to new heights.

 

The internships are 4-5 week work experience sessions arranged at a company chosen for each student according to ECCE test results, with 1-2 students per company. Internships are always under close supervision and guidance of senior company representatives who look after students, coach them and help them grow. The scope of work done by our students during their internships typically includes the practical side of office work, such as research, translations, drafting of documents, writing of memoranda, attending meetings, etc.

 

The work duties of individual internships are tailored to fit each student’s personal and professional requirements. Students can choose an internship in several international ECCE partners located in various European cities. The internship opportunities range from the largest international companies with a broad scope of activities to smaller and more focused ones. In the past, these included: PwC, T-Mobile, Unicredit Bank, Siemens, Exon Mobile etc.

 

ECCE partner companies grant reference letters of internships to be more competitive in the future, either for further education application or for job application.

ECCE Grand Reception

Traditionally Summer Program opens with:

Welcome gala evening for ECCE students, which provides an opportunity to meet the inspiring people who contribute to the ECCE community and also to meet other students from other fields of studies (Law and Architecture). In 2019, the Grand Reception will take place in mid-July.

 

The Grand Reception also serves as an annual meeting place of top-level representatives from Czech and foreign companies, politicians, diplomats, and representatives of academia.

Entertainment

Our students are offered a wide range of extracurricular activities during the Summer Program.

 

Our staff arranges various team-building events throughout the lecture period (first month) of the Summer Program. The goal is to engage students in various free time activities and introduce them to European culture in an entertaining and digestible way. We hold escape games, karaoke sessions, laser games and barbecues, and we go sightseeing in Prague and shop for traditional products and souvenirs. Trips around the Czech Republic and abroad are also organised, with destinations such as Český Krumlov, Kutná Hora, Vienna, Berlin etc.

 

Graduation and ECTS Credits

ECCE Graduation Certificates with worldwide recognition are provided.

 

Following the end of the summer lectures, ECCE holds an informal certificate awarding ceremony, usually in the form of an evening BBQ event. ECCE Graduation Certificates are issued under the auspices of the Charles University in Prague. (The oldest University in Central and Eastern Europe, est. 1348) and provide 4 ECTS credits to each Business Summer Program graduate.
