Excellent Opportunity!

10/10

I had the chance to intern with Ernst & Young in Prague through ESAC. I got to meet with professionals in Prague, had the opportunity to do some really interesting projects at EY, and learn more about working in Europe. The response to this internship from prospective employers has been excellent and people genuinely seem impressed when they ask me about this experience. You have the option of taking a class as well as doing the internship but I highly recommend doing the internship full time.

Pros:
1) Prague is the best city in the world to study abroad. I've studied abroad multiple times and Prague's nightlife, low cost of going out, excellent atmosphere, and beautiful buildings make Prague an excellent place.

2) ESAC was a great combination of locals who knew a lot about the country and people from the US who gave great support.

3) The ease of transportation in Prague make it very easy to get around all over the city.

4) Flights from Prague to other cities in Europe are cheap and quick so it's easy to make weekend trips happen.

5) The Cesky Krumlov optional trip was awesome- so definitely do that one.

How can this program be improved?

Housing was further away from the city than I would have liked but I understand that this is how ESAC is able to keep its cost so low.

Tyler Houston internship review 2015

10/10

While I was a part of the ESAC program the summer of 2015 I was lucky enough to have a fantastic internship with the Lobkowicz Collections in Prague. This internship also would not have been available to me without the help from the wonderful ESAC staff. My majors, Art History and History, did not fit the internships typically offered by ESAC. When I brought this up to the director, Kristine Zamastil, she immediately began helping me find an internship that would fit my studies. In what seemed like no time I was doing an online interview for the internship, thanks to Dr. Z.

My internship itself could not have been better. I spent my time split between a 1500s castle about 40 minutes outside of Prague and the Lobkowicz Palace in the castle complex in the heart of Prague. My main task was to help photograph, document, and file the graphics depository of the Lobkowicz art collection(one of the more extensive art collections in eastern Europe). During my time their I got valuable experience handling art work and seeing the behind the scenes of two very different museums.

While my internship specifically would not be the best for every student my experience surely would be. Not only did I get to receive college credit for an internship that greatly helps my resume. but I got to do it in the beautiful city of Prague. The program also helped to keep us active socially, offering multiple fun evenings like wine and steak tastings. All in all from start to finish my experience with ESAC could not have been better. From the first communication with ESAC I received constant help that made my trip the most productive it could be, they even helped me after the program was over because my internship ran longer! Great program and a very important experience.

How can this program be improved?

There is not much I would change honestly.

Summer Internship - KPMG

9/10

Absolutely incredible experience! I had the opportunity to work for KPMG, and I can say that I learned a lot and it was amazing to see how the office environment in Prague is different from in the United States. If you like to have fun, but at the same time learn about a completely different culture and really get outside your comfort zone, I highly recommend being a part of the ESAC program!

Once in a lifetime experience

10/10

Interning in Prague is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. My boss was American, and he showed us the ropes, customs, and traditions of Czech. My day to day experiences interning were tremendous, I would have a morning class and travel to work a few times a week. We learned some of the language, worked with locals and it truly made my experience. It takes you off of the beaten path and I truly got to enjoy the culture of Prague. This internship taught me that if I can function in another country knowing only a lick of the language, that the world is truly your oyster. Anything is possible as long as you set your mind to it. I can't wait to go back once I graduate to see what kind of opportunities are available.

Best Time of your Life!!!

10/10

A place as unique as Prague, being there is such a blessing. But to actually get credits and work experience as well was a privilege. The company I worked for was Jama the Hollow, an Americanized restaurant with the best owner/boss anyone could ever ask for! If you are looking to live a life in the business or marketing world, this is definitely the opportunity for you.
The amazing thing about ESAC, is there are all different types of internships focusing on different interests people have. So check it out and sign up because it is something that will change your life. I know it did for me!
Along with the credits and experiences you are also paying for many other perks like activities and meals. It is something you will always be glad you did and thankful for the opportunity!
Traveling is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. Take that and run with it....or fly to Prague.

There is nothing too critical I can say about this program or the internship. Some people may have not liked the fact that you had to take two trams to get to work. However, I loved it! I could never get sick of the views out of the window or listening to the people sitting next to me. I could never understand a word they would say but they all seemed like interesting conversations.

Prague: You can't put a price on the experience of a lifetime.

10/10

Upon my arrival in Prague I was welcomed into the ESAC program with open arms. As a full time marketing intern with Holmes Place Health Clubs, I was introduced to real world marketing with an international company. The experience was outstanding. I got to work closely with Holmes Place's Senior Marketing Coordinator and the graphic design team (which included interns from other countries like Malta and the UK) on many of their summer campaigns as well as working hard on newsletters used for enticing new members to join Holmes Place. I also was given some independent research to work on for Holmes Place with respect to the use of social media and the benefits social media can have for an up and coming company in today's technologically advanced world. I immediately felt like an integral part of their marketing team and it gave me both the real world and international experience that many others can not boast. While the days were long (I generally worked from 9-5) the experience was priceless. And after hours the beautiful and culturally rich city of Prague was waiting for me to explore! The interns and students were able to travel on the weekends as well, and Holmes Place was very flexible when it came to my travel; if I wished to take an extra day visiting another country they allowed me to work from home or on the go. Interning in Prague was the experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend the program to every student I know!

How can this program be improved?

The only downside of the program were our living conditions. We lived in Praha 7 and the dorms weren't the best. However we spent such little time at the dorms that that was rather insignificant. Also, from my understanding, the program is moving the student housing to a nicer area more centrally located and closer to the university so this should not be a problem at all in the future.

Overall a great program!

9/10

Overall ESAC was a great program. I interned and took one class. The internship was very helpful once applying for future internships and jobs. I interned with Deloitte in Prague and it definitely stood out on my resume. I got an internship back in the US with Deloitte and now have job offer. An international internship will make your resume stand out from others. The classes were also very well taught and interesting. The dorms were only about 5 minute ride to the city center. The directors were willing to help in anyway possible to make our stay better.

How can this program be improved?

Dorms could be closer to city center.
