Program Information:

The University of Economics, Prague is highly regarded for its business and economics programs. Our Summer in Prague – Business and Economics program focuses largely on European economies, politics, and cultures. The University, in conjunction with its “Czech Buddy System,” plans activities to truly involve you on campus and in your new city. Join a language exchange, social events, domestic and international trips, and sports. Prague is a top tourist destination due to its preserved architectural beauty and rich history, where you can amble among Gothic buildings and stroll along the Vltava River. An added bonus: Prague has one of the world’s best public transport systems, which means Europe is only a train-ride away!

Get excited about:
  • A solid introduction to economics in Central Europe from a leading Czech university
  • One of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities
  • Vibrant campus community with weekly activities for all students
  • Easy access to other European countries
  • University-run residence halls with international roommates and neighbors
Location:
The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is the seat of the Czech parliament and government. Moreover, Prague is among the oldest capitals of Europe and enjoys being a cultural and economic leader for the surrounding area. Its medium size of just over one million residents means there's plenty to explore, but not too much to overwhelm.

Home to historic sites such as Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge, Prague boasts a number of famous cultural attractions. In fact, there are more than ten major museums, along with countless theaters, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. Amazingly, much of the city survived the violence and destruction of twentieth century Europe. Amble among Gothic buildings, stroll along the Vltava River, and pop into the city's countless restaurants that offer a cozy atmosphere. You will notice several architectural styles that grace the city. Art Noveau, Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Roman and 20th-century styles all intermingle to give the city its unique character. With all these great attractions, Prague has become a leading tourist destination over the past few years due to growing interest and affordable travel options.

Immerse yourself in the rich artistic history of Prague. Don't forget that Prague has been home to many musicians, writers, and artists over its long history. Some of the most prominent names are Dvorák, Kafka, Kundera, Mozart, and Smetana.

It may be true that Melbourne, Australia, has the longest tram length in the world. However, Prague's tram network is the biggest by other measures. It runs more trams (900 against 500 in Melbourne), has more routes (33 against 28) and carries more passengers (356 million against 178 million). You’ll never have trouble with transportation and will always have something to do in Prague. More than that, the whole European continent is just a train ride away!

THE PROGRAM PARTNER - CISabroad
Center for International Studies Abroad (CISabroad) is an organization dedicated to providing innovative education programs that broaden academic perspectives, promote global awareness, and encourage personal development while laying the foundation for participants to become engaged world citizens. Learn more about CISabroad from their web site. On these affiliate programs, CISabroad staff members provide program-specific advising and guidance and answer students' and families' questions about the program details.

ACADEMICS
The specific course descriptions and options are described on the host website.  It is important to plan how the courses abroad will be applied towards your JWU degree.

Total Credit Hours Earned Abroad On This Program:
  • 9 semester credits (13.5 quarter credits)
A list of known credit/course equivalencies is available at the "Courses Offered" link in the fact sheet at the top of this page. If you would like to take courses abroad that do not appear on the list of known credit/course equivalencies, we will help you request a new course equivalency.  You are required to complete a Study Abroad Exchange and Foreign Course Equivalency Form for your academic plan abroad in order to coordinate your plan with Study Abroad and SAS.  Contact your Study Abroad Advisor for assistance in completing and submitting the course equivalency form.

Since host courses are not from the JWU catalog, you will schedule at JWU for a generic "ABRD4180" placeholder course that is holding the space for the host courses completed abroad. You will only be able to schedule for the placeholder course if you shared your final academic plan with SAS and official summary notes have been written in your JWU degree audit.

Upon completion of the program, the host will send an official transcript to JWU Study Abroad.  Previously approved courses which are successfully passed will be applied to the JWU transcript as transfer credit.  The typical timeline for your JWU transcript to be updated is 3-5 months.

Pre-departure meetings vary according to the program model and typically include discussions, on-line resources, and assignments to ensure you understand your specific program, the courses, housing, costs and other related details. These meetings may be a combination of in-person and web-based meeting formats.

An in-person Study Abroad Retreat is scheduled on each campus with advertised dates, times, and locations to discuss topics relevant to all study abroad programs.
