“Studying abroad helped me to adapt in an international working environment easily.”

Master in Business and Corporate Finance at University of Economics in Prague.

I am working full-time at an international company as a Buyer in Direct Procurement within the Aerospace industry. Studying abroad helped me to adapt in an international working environment easily and to effectively communicate in English with my colleagues. It gave me the opportunity to obtain my current job and also, understand the business organizations inside the company, for example, why are they taking “x” strategy? What is the role of every employee? Etc.

My best advice for students is to not be afraid of taking the decision to study in the Czech Republic, and to look for groups of international students that will support you during your stay, or you may also want to help others. Be prepared for the cultural shocks, especially if you are coming from America, and to take in all the knowledge from your classmates and teachers.
