4. 7. 2022 – 19. 8. 2022



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

Concept of "Learning by Experience"

Comprehensive knowledge of one's field is essential, but true business leaders need to be able to apply that knowledge in practice. Our goal is to provide ECCEDU attendees with an advantage and help them stand out from their colleagues. Moreover, every successful graduate can be awarded 4 ECTS credits for their completion of the program.

 

We want ECCEDU attendees to experience what it is actually like to work in the field of international business. Our aim is to enhance their skills by focusing on both their personal and professional development. The topics covered during our International Business Global Career Business Program will be carefully selected to reflect the constantly changing world of business, and prepare participants adequately. For this reason, the following topics might slightly differ from year to year.

Internships

Our internships offer the perfect experience to lift students to new heights and bring them closer to their goals.


The internships are 4 - 5 week-long work experience sessions arranged at a company of the student’s choice, depending on his/her ranking on the ECCEDU test. Internships are always under the close supervision and guidance of senior company representatives, who look after students, coach them and help them grow - for this reason, each company doesn’t take on more than 1 or 2 students.

 
During their internships, students get assigned personalized tasks, designed to fit their personal and professional interests. Their internship work also typically includes the practical side of office work, such as research, translations, the drafting of documents, the writing of memoranda, or attending meetings.


Students can choose internships in several international ECCEDU partners located in various European cities. Internship opportunities range from the largest international companies to smaller firms with a focused area of expertise. In the past, these have included Siemens, Blindspot Solutions, Red Hat, Creative Dock, Kiwi, Productboard, STRV, Socialbakers, DNAI, Wrike, among others. 

 

As a unique feature this year, we are offering group internships. Teams of students will get together and act as consultants to solve or improve on earlier solutions to a company's problem. This will be an excellent opportunity for students to develop their communication and problem-solving skills, and apply their knowledge to real-life cases.

 

ECCEDU partner companies supply students with reference letters, to help them be more competitive in the market place or for further education purposes.

Entertainment

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

 

Our staff arranges various team-building events throughout the lecture period. The goal is to engage students in various free-time activities and introduce them to European culture in an entertaining and didactic way. We organize escape games, karaoke sessions, laser games, and barbecues, go sightseeing in Prague and discover traditional products and shop for souvenirs. Trips around the Czech Republic and abroad are also organized. In the past, students have gone to Český Krumlov, Kutná Hora, Vienna, and Berlin. 

Graduation and ECTS credits

Recognized ECCEDU Graduation Certificates are provided.

 

After the end of lectures, ECCEDU holds an informal certificate awarding ceremony, usually in the form of an evening Barbecue event. ECCEDU Graduation Certificates are issued under the auspices of the Charles University in Prague (est. 1348), the oldest university in Central and Eastern Europe. It provides 4 ECTS credits to each International Business Summer Program graduate.
