Foreword from the Dean

The Faculty of International Relations of the University of Economics, Prague (UEP), was founded in 1991 as a successor of the original Faculty of Commerce. The original and prestigious study program - Economics of Foreign Trade - was transformed into a International Business program. Other programs, focusing on Business and Law, International Politics and Diplomacy or Tourism emerged during the nineties. There are two main directions in both teaching and research: International Business and International Politics and Diplomacy. Nowadays the Faculty has around 200 academics, and there are around 3,500 students enrolled in the Bachelor's and Master's programs. Faculty of International Relations was the first faculty in the Czech Republic that has achieved accreditation of a study program by EFMD. Two master programs in International Business have been awarded with the EPAS accreditation.
