Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to invite you to the next edition of International Week at the Faculty of Economics, VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic.

In 2010 we started the tradition of “International Week” as an international meeting place in order to inspire and stimulate people from many countries who are working in educational field (economic, business, entrepreneurial, international and similar fields).

Experience a vibrant international atmosphere and seize the opportunity to provide lectures for students, forge new partnerships, and indulge in a captivating array of social activities during our

15th International Week.

The primary objective of this programme is to offer our students, both local and international, the opportunity to attend lectures delivered by guest lecturers from our partner institutions. Simultaneously, our goal is to strengthen existing collaborations while fostering the development of new partnerships in teaching, research, and project initiatives in our institutions.

We really hope you take this great opportunity again to meet colleagues from all over Europe and participate in the International Week in Ostrava.

Our esteemed guests are invited to participate in the following programme:

Lectures: We invite our colleagues from partner universities to present their students experience of different teaching styles, lecturing in English, acquiring new knowledge and experience, and meeting our partner universities. But on the other hand we also would like our partners to experience teaching Czech students in a different background.  Lectures will have the opportunity to meet, discuss, and exchange ideas and best practises with colleagues from other universities.
