VŠO International


The degree programmes of the University College of Business (VSO) primarily focus

on educating and preparing qualified experts for professions in the tourism industry, in aviation services and aviation business management, as well as in the civil service and business sector. Our overriding aim is for students to graduate with theoretical knowledge they have already applied in real life. This way they can succeed in the highly competitive environment of the current labour market.

Vysoká škola obchodní v Praze, o.p.s. (VŠO) has been operating as a private school of higher education (non-university type) since 2000, with a curriculum based on economics and transport. In those seventeen years, VŠO has acquired an important position among non-university colleges in the Czech Republic. There are currently more than 2,500 students actively studying here.
