International Study Programs  (ISP) s.r.o. and the Institute of Management and the Cross-Cultural Management Centre of the Faculty of Business Administration (VŠE) today announced a cooperation agreement to share both  industry knowledge and academic and logistics services in order to enhance their offer of high-impact study and immersion programs.

The partnership draws upon both parties’ strong  global network of inspirational companies and speakers and aims to deliver high-quality education and innovation to business schools, universities and professional groups worldwide.  By combining their respective fields of expertise, participants benefit from an experienced central  provider, a greater quality guarantee and the choice of a condensed option for either  certification or university credit.

Jana Vodickova, Director of Sales and Operations at International Study Programs ISP said: “The idea stemmed from a shared passion for education and a like-minded approach that focused around a desire to design educational  experiences for corporations, and both local and international students. For us, being associated with one of the most prestigious Czech universities provides a great opportunity to bring academia and service closer together.”

Dr. Markéta Dianová, Executive Director of the Institute of Management commented, “ISP provides us with an ideal channel to further advance our Executive Education programme to a wider international audience.” Equally supportive, Dr. Richard Brunet-Thornton,  Executive Director of the Cross-Cultural Management Centre remarked, “From our initial encounter with ISP members I immediately sensed the synergy.”

VŠE was praised by the Eduniversal Ranking project as one of the best “business schools” in Central and Eastern Europe, while the Faculty of Business Administration is EQUIS accredited and ranks the faculty and curriculum among the top 1% of business schools internationally.
