Learn from the best

Project Manager Shadowing was, for a long time in the Czech Republic, a unique project that came from a long tradition and rich experience. Our program is one of the few that successfully connects academics with the business, and as a result, creates cooperation beneficial to both parties.

Projects call for master students of all years in Czech colleges and universities. Students, during the internship, are shadowing manager in reputable firms, identifying management practices and gaining practical experience, which complements with the theoretical knowledge acquired in school.


Internships take place over a period of 10 working days, during which students have the opportunity to work directly with the director of the company or its senior manager. The result is not just a mere studying of operations of the company. It also includes mentoring from experienced professionals who want to share their knowledge.

  • The program is primarily designed for MA students, but students obtaining a Bachelor’s degree might also participate.
  • The length of placements depends on an agreement between the student and the manager.
  • Venue placements will usually happen at our headquarters.
  • Participation is free of charge for students.

The new year is just beginning and, as every year, now is the time to connect with very interesting companies and managers. Students can look forward to these companies (more information on the shadow managers could be found below):

Feedback from students

„The shadow managers program was certainly one of the best steps that I have taken in the last year. During those two intensive weeks, I had the opportunity to watch true professionals at work and be part of their business. Because of this I learned a tremendous amount of new things, people, and ideas and ways of working. And best of all was a great openness and trust in my ability on the part of managers of the company, through which I could fully participate in the activities of the company and feel like a valuable member of the team.“ Filip Scotka (shadowed in society GRID International CZ)

„Program managers consider shadowing exceptionally successful. The best students will not only deepen their knowledge, but will also look into management behind the scenes’ and will gain invaluable experience. Shadowing supports developing the ability to determine your goals and to achieve it. It’s up to the student how much he/ she wants to learn and how much he or she is involved and if it reaches the desired objective.“ Jitka Odehnalova (shadowing in the company of Johnson & Johnson)
