1. WHAT DOES THE GLOBALIZATION AND LOCALIZATION STUDY PROGRAM OFFER?

The Globalization and Localization study program acquaints students with developments in the world economy with an emphasis on the process of globalization. However, this process involves many of the risks exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. The use of global sharing and decentralized technologies creates space for the development of local economies. Students will learn what local anchoring offers, both in the areas of the local economy and also in the participation of citizens and community activities. An integral part of the program is the emphasis on modern technologies, from 3D printing to blockchains, fab labs, digitization options and more.

The study program is all the more topical due to the pandemic and related economic problems, as it directly reflects the key issues of the future: The recovery and modernization of the economy and society. This study program expresses our common responsibility to our homeland and shows the way to implement it.

SUBJECTS IN PROFILE:

    I graduated with a bachelor's degree from the College of European and Regional Studies in České Budějovice and transferred to UCB in Prague to do my master's degree. Great choice – UCB is much more like a public school and the quality of lecturers is 100% better. For example, my teacher Mrs. Palatková is someone to know in tourism.

    Kristína Jíšová

    UCB is one of the few schools in the Czech Republic that really does offer experience. During our studies, we worked on projects where the results were then taken up by the National Monuments Institute. Many lectures were also given by external lecturers, so we learned how things really work in the world.

    She works as a Program Coordinator at Smaller Earth. In 2009, she did an internship in New York. She lived in England for three and a half years and worked for an Australian travel agency. Work never bothered Simona, so when she was given the chance to go to America to work as kitchen help, she didn't hesitate for a moment. She got experience, made new friends, and traveled around the United States with the money she earned. This opened the door to job opportunities in Spain and England. She's working today.
