From August 21 to September 1, 2023, the University of Ostrava will be holding its second summer school for international students focused on the development of their entrepreneurial skills. This year the programme will also include the topic of well-being which plays an important role in our work and personal lives. The summer school is designed for all students, not only those studying in business sphere, as we believe that business essentials and well-being are topics relevant to all of us.

Moreover, the participants will meet other international students and will be able to discuss their ideas with our international experts. The programme is designed to be interactive to get the most out of it. The language of instruction is English (B2 level is recommended for applicants). Participants will gain 3 ECTS credits!
