Long-Term Alumni Career Projects

AZU – Activity Brings Success

"The national development AZU project (slk. Aktivita zvyšuje úspech/Activity increases success) has been created to help university alumni find work. We believe that everything can be done better, more responsibly and, thus, be made more transparent than ever before. Our aim is to enable students view things in an utterly different perspective. We believe that everybody can make a living, provided they have been given adequate education and sufficient information."
