University of Economics Prague -Faculty of International Relations

Introduction

In 1991, the Faculty of International Relations (FIR) became the successor of the Faculty of Trade, one of the founding faculties of the University of Economics. The new name was not the only change; new content for the study programs came about as a result of the new socio-economic situation after the Velvet Revolution and represented the strengthening of internationalization as the main competitive advantage of FIR graduates.

FIR is the largest of the six faculties of the university, with more than 4500 students and 250 employees. FIR offers a wide range of programs, which are all characterized by substantial interdisciplinarity and a strong international focus. Emphasis is also put on foreign language education with demanding requirements regarding achieved proficiency to communicate in at least two foreign languages. During their studies, students may acquire internationally recognized certificates of language proficiency.

FIR is very active and successful in the sphere of internationalization. In 2012 and again in 2014, the International Trade master’s program obtained, as the first in the Czech Republic, the prestigious international EPAS accreditation, granted by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD); in addition, the EGEI program (Economics of Globalization and European Integration) was repeatedly selected by the European Commission for financing from the Erasmus Mundus fund. FIR also offers other English-taught accredited programs – IBB (Bachelor of International Business) and the master’s program IDS (International and Diplomatic Studies).

At FIR you may study in English on every level of studies, from bachelor´s to doctoral. About the number of subjects taught in foreign languages, the number of visiting professors from abroad and students of FIR traveling for studies abroad, our faculty is among the best faculties within the Czech Republic.

The goal of FIR is to strengthen its internationalization also within the field of research, further deepen its cooperation with the private sector and continuously update the teaching process with the latest trends and knowledge. FIR thus strives for the fulfillment of its mission as an internationally recognized, research-oriented institution of higher education, preparing top specialists capable of succeeding in the ever-changing international environment.
