Bachelor in Economics and Finance (BEF) is a three-year program taught fully in English offered for students with a complete secondary education. The university charges tuition fees for the studies. Students can apply for a number of external scholarships to cover the tuition fees and living expenses.
The program aims to give the student a thorough grounding in both theoretical and applied economics and finance. We put emphasis on developing abstract analytical reasoning, which allows our graduates to solve complex economic and financial problems in various settings. The applicants must have solid background in Mathematics and good command of English. Courses are taught both by core faculty and professionals from the central bank, commercial banks and business analysts. Our graduates typically take a Master degree in Prague or abroad and then assume analytical positions in banking, consulting, investment funds or public administration.
To complete the program, the students must (i) collect 180 ECTS credits, (ii) defend their Bachelor’s Thesis and (iii) pass the final comprehensive examination. Students need to take core courses 89 credits. In addition, the students should collect the remaining credits from electives offered at IES min. 64 credits and max. 27 credits from optional Bachelor’s level courses offered outside IES (including Czech language classes).
