The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) was established in 1998. It is accredited as a Higher Education Institution by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and is a large and leading English language university in the Czech Republic. Teaching takes place in English and currently, more than 800 students from more than 60 countries study at UNYP. Lecturers come from the United States, EU and the Czech Republic (more than 20 countries in all), and bring with them both academic and professional backgrounds.
Our students are advised and nurtured by faculty who will develop their critical thinking, analytical, problem-solving, leadership, and decision-making skills required for career success and a fulfilling life in the 21st century. Further to this the University cooperates closely with a number of multinational companies and offers to the students an exclusive opportunity to apply their new knowledge in practice.
UNYP offers undergraduate programs in business administration, communication and mass media, finance, marketing, psychology, international economic relations, IT management, and English language and literature. Further to the ministry accreditation UNYP’s business programs are accredited by The International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), USA. The 4 year American Bachelor programs at UNYP lead to a degree awarded by SUNY/ESC, as part of the co-operation between the two Institutions.
UNYP also offers a range of MBA specializations and Masters degrees in professional business communications (in partnership with LaSalle University), and an LLM in international and commercial law (in partnership with Greenwich University). A PhD by publication is offered in partnership with the University of Bolton in various disciplines.
