For students of economics, finance, and business, a semester abroad is an essential way to gain a deeper understanding of the world economy.
With the IEF program, students directly enroll in courses at a prestigious economics and finance institute in Prague. Outside of class, students have numerous opportunities to explore European businesses firsthand, learn from industry experts, and discover the remarkable city of Prague.
As an IEF student, you will directly enroll in two or three courses at the Institute of Economic Studies (IES) of Charles University, the top ranked university in all of Central and Eastern Europe. In cooperation with the UPCES study abroad program, you will also take one or two UPCES Humanities course (of your choice), as well as one Introductory Czech Language course. Courses at the Institute of Economic Studies explore topics in modern economics and finance, incorporated with issues related to policy, accounting, management, and strategy. Through co-curricular site visits and guest speakers, you will discover the operations of European financial institutions, consultancies, and other businesses. In the process, you will gain valuable international experience that will help refine your post-graduation goals and enhance your future career.
