Czech Business and Culture Professional Programme

What it is

Ideal for the expat, and the business or management professional, the programme provides the participants with an intense overview of history, culture, language, and business and management practices of the Czech Republic.  Led by industry and government leaders, an in-depth exposé of the business environment in the Czech Republic. Representatives from the Czech banking sector, Czech Trade, Czech Invest and Czech Tourism walkthrough the various conditions and requirements of doing business. Various foreign Chambers of Commerce are also represented. Upon successful completion, participants are awarded a Certificate of Completion.


How it Works

Comparable with other professional sessions of this nature, participants register with their corporate educational coordinator or Human Resources manager.  Once the request has been received from the individual or organisation, our internal process formally invoices and registers the applicant(s).  For expediency, the above must be done 3 to six months prior to the requested session start date. Once the registration process completed, participants receive all course materials, information regarding the contact course advisor as well as preparatory lessons and exercises.


What is included

All course materials, business and cultural visits as well as a welcome and farewell event. Participants are granted a university email account and Wi-Fi access.



Throughout the process, participants have access to the Prague-based instructor outside of the scheduled sessions through email, the faculty course site, and individual and/or team sessions throughout using this period using Zoom.

Depending on the Prague on-campus duration of three, or 5 days, the applicants select the same number of courses based on the number of days. The proposed course offering may be customised should the client institution or individual desire to specialise in a specific subject matter.

Course days are divided into two complementary sessions. The morning is dedicated to a seminar, or interactive discussion on the subject matter. Following which, the afternoon reinforces the acquired learning through site visits, excursions, and corporate and business encounters.



Unlike other professional conferences, Executive Education proposes an informative learning experience in one of the most enchanting cities in Europe. Upon successful completion of the programme, a certificate of completion is provided. The course is accredited by the European Foundation for Management Development and the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Instruction is provided by industry experts and seasoned academics.
