Anglophone and Francophone

Francophone Double Degree Programme

The Faculty of Economics at the Technical University in Košice offers its students a unique opportunity to acquire two diplomas through collaborative ventures with international partners. As part of this initiative, students undertake a portion of their academic journey at a partner institution abroad. Upon their return, their academic achievements are recognized as per the terms outlined in the bilateral agreement. As a result, students obtain both a Slovak and a French diploma, significantly enhancing their prospects for quality employment in the job market.

The primary objectives of the Francophone programmes are as follows:

  • Mastery of language fluency within the context of the chosen field of study, alongside a proficient command of technical terminology in both Slovak and the French language;
  • Graduates can benefit from increased employability in both domestic and international companies;
  • During the selection process for Erasmus+ mobility programmes students earn bonus points;

This initiative underscores TUKE EKF's commitment to fostering a globally competitive cohort of graduates poised for success in the contemporary job market and beyond.
