PCU partners with key International Chambers of Commerce and Professional Associations in the Czech Republic to create opportunities for students and our faculty to connect directly with working professionals.
The Business Plus initiative extends partner event invitations to motivated students who are selected by faculty to attend business briefings, seminars and lectures, giving them valuable insight and the chance to meet influential leaders.
And for our faculty, meeting with key business leaders allows them to hear first-hand the opportunities and challenges that businesses and their employees are facing. As a result, faculty understand businesses needs and can develop relevant programme content, shaping graduates that are ready for contemporary business environments.
The Nine Chambers evening was an amazing opportunity to meet with business leaders and chamber of commerce representatives at the beautiful Zofin Palace. The event offered a wonderful friendly atmosphere, in which I was able to meet representatives from numerous international companies as well as local ones from various industries such as technology, software and food and beverage. It was a wonderful place to discover new business opportunities and expand my network of contacts."
