CET Prague

Students on the Charles Bridge

Craft the Perfect Semester.

Study Business & Economics and learn why companies are investing in Prague. Select Central European Studies and learn about Prague’s history as a hotbed of resistance and artistic experimentation. Or choose Jewish Studies and get to know the Jewish community in Prague, its history, and its place in contemporary Europe. Regardless of what you choose, you’ll be able to try out distinctly Czech electives or take a requirement for your major back home. The choice is yours.

Intern. Travel. Change Your Worldview.

Interact with locals. Absorb the culture. Learn all you can. How? You’ll attend a Traveling Seminar to Poland, Hungary, and Austria that will bring your coursework to life. You can also choose to pursue an internship to build skills and your résumé. We have placements in fields like energy, marketing, finance, and many more. With opportunities like these, this program will change your worldview.
