Message from the President


Josef ŠímaDear friends,

CEVRO, a public policy and educational think-tank, has been growing rapidly since its founding in 1999.  In 2005, CEVRO established a private college, CEVRO Institute, which prides itself on providing an elite education. Our accredited programs focus on bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science, international relations, and public administration. Within these programs students familiarize themselves with a broad range of relevant subjects, including economics, sociology, political philosophy, law, and modern methods of management and marketing. Practical courses are reinforced with theory-oriented courses, and students have the opportunity to choose a wide range of electives. Through our study abroad program, foreign students enrich our classes with their differing life experience and perspectives.

The private college of the CEVRO Institute seeks to be extraordinary. We are proud that our college is private and have created an academic community where students get individual attention from professors. We deliver a quality education to our students. An emphasis on freedom, markets, and rule of law is a part of our education.

Our team includes elite professors headed by the directors of the degree programs - men with respected domestic and foreign reputations: Prof. JUDr. Dušan Hendrych, CSc. and Prof. Dr. Miroslav Novák. As the college grows, new quality scholars are coming, and the range of courses is further widening.

We are proud of our first graduates. They know the college's qualities and seek to help further the college's development through our alumni association. The college is located in the former Association of the Czech Bourgeois (Měšťanská beseda), a beautiful and historic building in the center of Prague.

CEVRO Institute strives to enlighten and contribute to the betterment of society. Our college is a way for us to share knowledge and prepare the next generation for leadership and civic engagement. 

Your president,
Josef Šíma
