The Private University College of Economic Studies Ltd. is a non-university independent (private) tertiary education institution offering accredited undergraduate and master’s study programmes (as well as lifelong learning schemes) and carrying out associated scholarly activities.
PUCES is a higher education institution attached to the recent tradition of non-state education in the Czech Republic. Its curriculum having been accredited and the state permission granted in August 2000, the first academic year started in February 2001. Despite its short history, the college has established a good reputation, having graduated hundreds of successful students so far. The accreditation of a follow-up master’s degree programme in 2009 marked the beginning of a higher stage of PUCES development.
