CERGE-EI (Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education - Economics Institute) is a joint workplace of Charles University (Faculty of Social Sciences) and the Economics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

We currently offer following programs:

PhD in Economics is a western-style program designed for outstanding students interested in economic research and who desire a rigorous graduate education in Economics at a prestigious international institution. Similar to top western institutions, the program consists of two years of MA-level coursework and two or more years of dissertation research. After two years, students receive a US MA in Economics degree. Graduates receive both US and Czech doctoral degrees. The majority of students receive a tuition waiver and a living stipend.

Master in Economic Research is a 2-year western-style program designed for students interested in applied economic research and public policy. The aim of this program is to prepare students for their careers in public policy institutions (central banks, ministries, government advisory bodies), international organizations, think-tanks, and private sector companies. Graduates receive a Czech degree fully accredited by Charles University.
