I think you should accept that the vast majority of English language programmes in Poland suck.

The English language programs at Polish colleges/unis tend to exist primarily to make money for the university and to provide people who couldn't get into serviceable institutions back home with an opportunity to spend their parents' cash.

I'm going to have to agree with delphiadomine and Harry. The vast majority of programs taught in English at Polish universities are a joke. Like Harry said, the universites run these programs to make cold cash from gullible rich foreigners. In a field like economics and international business, where the reputation of the program is a major factor determining the worth of your degree when looking for work, it's best to apply to the best programs you possibly can. I wouldn't waste time on these programs.

The content of these courses is often hilariously irrelevant too, as the university gets anyone halfway capable in English to teach whatever they can.

I imagine a degree from a Polish university would be all but worthless outside of Europe for most people.

I don't agree. In the USA for example, a degree from a Polish state university can be valued more than from an American university. Polish matura is commonly recognized as equivalent to 2 years of American college. 3 years from the Jagiellonian University gets you easily accepted to any Ph.D. program as a transfer student. With a M.A. from the University of Warsaw you probably have a better chance of getting to Harvard Law School than with a B.A. from Harvard. Polish public universities are very good at teaching, and that is recognized worldwide. However, on the lists of best universities Polish schools don't do well for two reasons. They don't help you find a job. Secondly, Polish professors work in a lazy system which does not force them to "publish or perish", so they don't publish, are not quoted in scientific papers, which lowers the scores of Polish schools. They are not prolific scientists, but good academic teachers. There are thousands of Poles with Polish degrees teaching in American Universities.

I don't understand anything of PUEB's mission and vision.

The mission and vision of almost any English language programme in a non-English speaking country is to attract students who think they can study in English, extract some money from them and discard them.

The old system (first year intensively learning Polish and then in regular classes with Polish students) worked much, much better in actually teaching students something.

Although I've never studied in Poland, what Mafketis says makes lots of sense to me. Besides, do you think a foreign, non-native English speaking student can actually trust the English skills of a non-native English-speaking instructor?

If I were a Vietnamese studying in English (not my mother tongue) with a Polish or German professor whose mother tongue isn't English either, I'd become terribly confused, not feeling I had an anchor in my own mother tongue with which to guide me through difficult material!

Again, it'd be almost like the blind (or seeing impaired) leading the visually handicapped, sort of like playing a game of "Simon Says" with Abbott & Costello plus The Marx BrosLOL By the end of the encounter my head would be reeling!

If you graduate from a university in Poland (the Poznan school seems good), you'll have good chances of finding employment not only in Poland but also anywhere else in the Western Europe.

If can do so in Polish - yes.

If you want to do so in English - no.

I've graduated from Poznan university of economics (in english), the program needs lots of improvement and the finance program is quite new, so I don't know if you'll benefit from these studies or not, I personally learned a lot in many classes and felt that I've wasted my time in other classes, some teachers were excellent and had an excellent command of english, while others had a slight polish accent (which didn't affect comprehension), and we only had one case where the teacher was bad in english, but we informed the program coordinator and this issue was fixed.

I think it is possible to find work if you graduate, especially if you speak several languages as there are many international companies that have offices in Poland, you would also have the possibility to do a master in another european country with your degree at Poznan university of economics, I've been told that SGH Warsaw is a better choice if you want to make connections
