Bridging the classroom with the professional world

At the foundation of AAU's existence has always been a strong connection to the professional world. Not only does this connection help shape education in the classroom, it fosters a symbiotic community and network that goes far beyond our campus. Currently, AAU has over 80 internship providers related to all of AAU’s fields of study, many of which are our own alumni.  

To enable students’ success beyond the classroom, AAU’s Career Center connects and guides our students’ academic experiences to their professional futures through an assortment of platforms and opportunities; 

Internship Course

Why do an internship? For some students, an internship is the ultimate way to explore a career. For others, it is a great way to gain relevant experience that will make them a stronger candidate for employment after graduation.

With the Internship Course, AAU supports all of its students to find placements most suited to their unique goals and curiosities. Students can learn more about the Internship Course on the AAUNET Career Center page here.

AAU has a full time Career Development Specialist, Elizabeth Nováček, who also works directly with AAU’s Alumni Community. Through working with our alumni, the Career Center’s services are optimized with the experiences and successes of our grads.

In addition to overseeing the Career Center’s activities, Career Development Specialist is available to help advise students and graduates about developing their professional profile, the job market and application procedures.

Professional Network

In addition to the fact that Czech Republic enjoys one of the lowest unemployment rates in the EU and that there is high demand international employees, AAU fosters an exclusive network of potential employers, partners and mentors in the Czech Republic and internationally. With this network, students graduate from AAU with not only a degree, but a professional community that will last a lifetime.

Mentorship Hub

Some lessons cannot be taught in a classroom but only through professional and real world experiences. The Mentorship Hub bridges that gap by connecting students and young graduates with experienced alumni and members of the AAU community who can share the challenges, successes and cross roads they faced on their career paths, and offer their advice in this ever diversifying career world. With mentors who work in embassies, private sectors and start-ups, all AAU students and graduates are welcome to meet up a mentor to discuss what the industry is like from the inside and to advise them.
