The department pays particular attention to economic English covering various aspects of the economy. In research, it has long been concerned with lexicography, which resulted in the publication of English-Czech and Czech-English dictionaries of the lexis of economics, law and accountancy, and a dictionary of English phraseology. The department has foreign assistant lecturers from Great Britain, the Irish Republic, and the USA. It has a long-term contract with the Randolph-Macon Women’s College (USA) that sends two of its graduates at the UEP every year. Within the framework of CEMS (the Community of European Management Schools) programme, the department cooperates with departments of other CEMS member universities. Examiners are also exchanged regularly.
