Our school was the first university in the region of Mladá Boleslav and the Educational Centre Na Karmeli was founded in 2007. This location can boast a tradition of education and book printing from the age of the Unity of Brethren in the 16th century.

Our university has had excellent spatial and technical conditions for both teaching and other professional activities since September 2007.

The Bachelor Degree Progamme includes one semester of mandatory internship in an industry enterprise, usually in ŠKODA AUTO a.s., furthermore the best students are placed in foreign subsidiaries of the Volkswagen group.
