What is the language of the studies?

Our programs are in English (including content materials like videos, e-books, tips, e-tests, etc., as well as communication with EDU Effective). But you have the possibility to write written outputs (evaluation and contribution of modules and personal action plans) in English, Czech or Slovak language.

Note: Tutorial videos have transcripts in English and you can translate them into your language using, for example, online translators. Featured videos usually have the option of subtitles in different languages, you can also slow down the videos and thus make it easier to understand the content.

What is the length of the studies?

The Effective MBA, MPA, MSc. or LL.M. program consists of 10 modules. Each module comprises of 30 blocks (daily lessons) of about 15 minutes. This means that if you proceed at the designed pace, you will complete the program in 10 months. To ensure that you have all the time you need, we provide an extra 2-month-long anti-stress time reserve, which means that you have a total of 12 months to complete the program.

Our Doctoral programs (DBA, Ed.D. and Ph.D.) consist of 12 modules and writing a dissertation. The standard length of the studies is 24 months but we offer a 6-month-long anti-stress time reserve, which means that you have a total of 30 months to complete the program.

Please note that there is a 4-hour delay in between each daily block to ensure that the micro-learning aspect of your studies remains as effective as possible. This means that after you complete one block, another one automatically unlocks in 4 hours.

When can I start?

Immediately - you don't have to wait for anything, start today! You can apply immediately to secure your spot.

What if I need to skip a day or more?

No problem! Each lesson is unlocked after the completion of the previous one; if you miss a day or two, you will continue where you left off. We recommend that you follow the daily routine, but we understand that it is not always possible.

Why is there a delay in between the daily blocks?

There is an extra delay because of the benefit of efficiency. The information must be applied after some time. The delay works so that at the beginning of the study you will see 3 blocks in the student platform (Welcome, About Module I., Block 1/30). All blocks with a number have a set delay in the form of automation when after one block is completed, another block is automatically added to the system after 4 hours.

Do your titles have official EQF rating?

Because we are based in the Czech Republic and titles such as MBA are considered to be professional titles here, they do not have an official EQF rating, as EQF is mainly concerned with academic titles and primary and secondary education.
