How we improve our graduate employability:

An indivisible part of the full-time bachelor study programme is the student s´ internship. These internships form the fifth semester and are undertaken at ŠKODA AUTO or its suppliers within the Czech Republic. Many students of the follow-on master study programme participate in internships whilst studying on a part-time, thus gaining not only theoretical expertise, but also relevant work experience. Students with an excellent command of foreign language can apply for internships abroad. Abroad, students usually undertake the internship within the Volkswagen concern or the ŠKODA AUTO group.

How we give our programmes the international dimension:

In both the bachelor and master degree programmes emphasis is placed on language acquisition and all students have to study at least two foreign languages, usually English and German. However they can also select courses in Russian, Spanish or Chinese. Most courses especially in the follow-on master study programme include the global business environment.

Students can also study abroad for one or two semesters at our partner universities and undertake internships in businesses within the EU with the support of the Erasmus programme. We also support worldwide collaboration mainly in China and Russia. Also in collaboration with Steyr University all students have the opportunity of obtaining a double degree. Furthermore, the university also organises intensive short-term projects, summer schools and language courses in collaboration with foreign partners. Finally both programmes can be both studied in English.
