The field of international relations of the Faculty of Economics and Management as well as the other faculty activities has changed significantly since 1990. In comparison with the period before 1989, the changes in international relations have been linked especially to (i) volume of relations, (ii) number of partners involved, (iii) reorientation of the international relations to the new geographical and also professional (pedagogical/research) areas. The main faculty aim is to keep, develop and improve the current level of international relations in line with the faculty development goals. The starting point for the international relations is derived from the strategic faculty priorities and from the integrated shape of the activities within the faculty, which both correspond with the university strategy. Due to many different forms of international relations our faculty has a good name and holds a prestigious position among the best economic faculties in the Czech Republic. In relation to our environment we take into account the complete socio-economic situation in the Czech Republic as well as the international atmosphere in the global environment, which still keeps its significant particular regional attributes. The aim of our international activities is to support our international relations as a way to enhance the position and good name of the Faculty of Economics and Management within and also with-out the European education area.
The key focus within the international relations has been changing from quantity to quality, which is just a continuation of the process started in the past. It does not mean that we do not look for new contacts and partners in the field of international activities; it means that we focus on those, which significantly help to enhance and improve the specific dimension given by our study programmes. Our place in the international network of important economic faculties improves also our position in the Czech Republic. We are not only in the position of a recipient in international relations. We offer several well established activities linked to the international education area (especially the two year MSc. study programme in Economics and Management, Informatics, European Agrarian Diplomacy taught in the English Language) see http://msc.pef.czu.cz/
, the American Summer Study School see http://www.summerschool.cz

At the present, we have established another possibility for our students to achieve a Double Degree in cooperation with Wageningen University and Research Center (the Netherlands), which represents the world top in the field of agriculture and rural development, and with University of Cranfield at Silsoe (United Kingdom) which is a well known British research oriented university
