Approximately 650 applicants from more than 50 countries and 200 enrolled students from 20 countries - ECCE successfully proves the need for practical skills on the market.
European Centre for Career Education is a practical education school which specialises in the Legal, International Business, Architectural and Medical fields. ECCE programs are 2 months long, taking place in the heart of Europe and the 8th most popular meeting destination in the world - Prague during the summer. ECCE not only creates some of the best networking opportunities in those fields but solves several of the world’s youth dilemmas:
- the market hunger for practical skills
- the unemployment rate of the graduates
- innovation in education
- inequality and the gender gap
Why are we so unique?
- ECCE programs include 3 weeks of intensive practical courses and 4 weeks of internships in the related firms. We count on 200 international partners all around the Schengen area to give our students this insight. Companies like Siemens, Unicredit, ExxonMobil, T-Mobile, Lego or law firms as DLA Piper, Clifford Chance, Linklaters, Bird & Bird and many more, gladly provide places for our students to prepare the young potential leaders with comprehensive and relevant hands-on experience and know-how.
- In 15 days, we bring 30 hot practical topics from experts in their fields.
- Last year, the ECCE summer program in law became the biggest educational project between Europe and China.
This year we received more than 650 applications from all around the world. There are 200 enrolled students ready to spend their summer in Prague.
The Charles University (the oldest university in Central Europe and one of the most prestigious ones) accredits two of our programs - law and international business - with 4 ECTS points and accommodates our lectures. ECCE has auspices from the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Prague Municipality, as well as CVUT for the architecture program.
We developed our programs in the 4 fields which are the most demanding when it comes to practical experience. Architecture, law, business, and medicine are highly practical degrees, for which students always need internships to excel in their career. Furthermore, these areas of study are some of the most affected by the growing industrial development. In the market, there is the requirement for digital advanced literacy and this shift is not yet indicated in many of the educational institutions. These issues of the millennial generation are not only evident in the European market, there is a need for transformation reform in education all around the world. The proof is the success of our centre in the Chinese market. For the second year, ECCE received around 300 applications from Chinese universities.
ECCE has an answer for yet another one of the colossal issues during the past years - the gender equality dispute and women leadership support. Around 90% of our students are female and we commit to contribute to, discuss, and embrace their education, practical skills and future career development. We work on closing the unemployment rate gender gap. The interesting fact is that we do not need to encourage them, this percentage is based on market interest and registrations.
ECCE didn't just respond to statistics but to real-life needs.
The support from our institution comes not only from the percentage of enrollment, we also involve the talented students from all around the world in many scholarship contests and competitions to enhance our programs. This year we invested almost 80.000 € in the form of local and international scholarships. This is only one way in which we try to support the need for reform in education around the world.
How do we accomplish success?
We help each participant to focus in their field of study. We train our students with the most useful practical knowledge - how to get through a dream-job interview by engaging them with potential employers and professionals of similar profile. We secure internships where they can see how those top-tier companies, law firms, architectural studios and hospitals function. A tailor-made experience for every student is guaranteed. We observe the transformation of our students, we see the jobs they get, the Universities they enter, the leadership they express. Most of them come to us shy and inexperienced, and leave as one of the future leaders in their field.
We encourage the young generation to change what they don't like and find a solution for it.
