Cracow University of Economics (CUE) is the largest school of economics in Poland, and the third biggest university in Cracow, a major Polish academic centre. The University was the first institution of higher education in Poland to introduce studies in English in the early 1990s. CUE graduates are among the most successful in Poland in matching their knowledge and skills with the employer's needs. For international students, we offer specially designed programmes in English. The University enjoys a number of international contacts, as the faculty and student visits abroad for scientific purposes as well as foreign internships and training programmes are one of the University's priorities.
In the era of knowledge society and globalization processes, modern economy should be strongly supported by science to face the challenges of international market. Our University takes responsibility for the preparation of both Poles and many foreign students to work in the new global market. International cooperation between scientists and individuals involved in industry is the most critical link, which is based on knowledge that reaches far beyond Poland's boundaries.
Every month Krakow's clubs, which boast the unique and unforgettable atmosphere, organize integration events for our students. As a result of contracts concluded with student organizations, the clubs offer special promotions for students and organize competitions with valuable prizes. Also, fancy dress parties are organized, so you can experience the atmosphere of Hawaii, gangster movies or the banquets of ancient Rome. Those who have experienced Krakow's night life at least once want to come back and do it again.
Every year the city of Krakow hosts to one of student greatest events - Krakow's Juvenalia. During the event, the city authorities hand over the "keys of the city" to the student community, giving it the entire control of Krakow. Polish and foreign stars have their concerts, while Krakow's other universities organize their local events. One of the accompanying events at Cracow University of Economics is the Competition of Faculties - students and scientific workers enter for sports competitions. Thanks to the support of the audience and the spirit of rivalry, the Competition of Faculties is the spectacular case of student-professor integration.
