The Czech Republic is the European crossroads of culture and commerce, where business activities in Prague and other parts of the country reflect the full integration into the EU and global markets and its geographical position in the heart of Europe. Our program in Prague (known locally as Praha) offers a unique, academically enriching experience in the heart of Europe.

Learn About Revitalization
The Czech Republic has successfully transitioned from communist rule to a stable democratic government. After many years of European Union membership, the Czech Republic offers the opportunity to explore revitalization and restructuring in industrial areas such as the Ostrava region. You will be able to talk to experts and business representatives about the specifics of being part of the EU market and to small business owners about keeping it local.
Experience the Outdoors
You’ll find that Czechs love the outdoors. You won’t need tour guides or expensive equipment to explore the country’s beautiful mountains and countryside through a well-maintained network of hiking, cycling and cross-country ski trails. You can pick up a trail from any train station in or near Prague, or simply use the inexpensive, reliable and efficient train system.
Enjoy Music and Art
If you love music and art, you’ll be able to enjoy anything from opera in the Estate Theater (where Mozart premiered his “Don Giovanni”), walking into a jazz bar for a late-night jam session or finding a club for dancing. Prague’s contemporary art scene features interesting street art, along with galleries, museums and visiting exhibits from around the world.
Explore Nearby Sites and Cities
The cost of public transport is small compared to its accessibility and reliability, so you’ll be able to explore other small towns, with baroque churches, medieval castles and chateaus just outside Prague. Prague is very well connected to other European cities like Vienna, Budapest, Cracow, Munich and Berlin — all just a train or bus ride away. And an inexpensive, reliable and convenient public transportation network within the city, its surroundings, and across the country makes it easy to explore the country outside Prague (also known as the City of a Hundred Spires).
