The Central Europe Connect - Joint Certificate Program (CEC) offered by Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) gives bachelor’s students the opportunity to study at three different locations and strengthen their expertise in Europe’s fastest-growing region together with international students from WU and EUBA partner universities.


What you will study

Three business schools – WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business), University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA) and SGH Warsaw School of Economics – joined forces to develop the certificate program “Central Europe Connect”. Participants in the Central Europe Connect - Joint Certificate Program (CEC) offered by Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) will learn about the issues that multinational firms are facing when doing business in the Central European region.

The economies of Central Europe impress with a fast catching-up process as well as economic growth and vitality. Strong foreign direct investment inflows, a renewed industrialization, the integration into global value chains as well as the emergence of local champions have been shaping the new economic landscape. The region ranging from Poland over Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia to Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria has become the “home market” for many regional players. This study program brings together students from three universities and prepares them for a career with multinational firms operating in the region.

Programme Structure

The program focuses on:

  • A program in English with a focus on international business in the context of Central Europe
  • Three one-week courses within one semester at three renowned universities
  • 15-20 bachelor’s students from each university study and work together on projects in intercultural teams
  • Company visits, case studies and project work provide practice insights
  • Sightseeing tours and social events enrich the local experience
  • An interactive approach and work in teams form the starting point for a network of Central European talents
