Department of Exact Methods

Department of Exact MethodsThe department was established in 2002 but its beginnings stretch back as far as 1992. Within the scope of the Institution of Regional Management PF JčU arose the Department of Mathematical Methods and Information Science led by Associate Professor Stuchlý. From the independent faculty in 1994, there was established the Department of Mathematical Methods and Information Science (led by Professor Černý) with two sections – Mathematical Methods and Statistics (led by associate professor Stuchlý) and Information Science (led by Mr. Jelínek, Msc.). The Department of Information Science arose in 1997 (led by Mr. Jelínek, Msc.) and the Department of Mathematical Methods (led by associate professor Stuchlý). In 2002, they were combined in to the Department of Information Management (led by Professor Jiroušek). In July of 2012, structural changes in the departments at the Faculty of Management resulted in the renaming of the department to the Department of Exact Methods.

No modern manager can function without appropriate formal instruments or an effective use of information and knowledge, and these are precisely the main field in which the members of the department are engaged in, both educationally and professionally. Irrespective of the internal structure of the department or its organisational integration, information science and applied mathematics and statistics have a firm hold at the faculty. This is not as merely basic or support subjects for the other departments, but also while educating students in their own managerial-information secondary specialization.

Scientific research activities

The individual staff of the Department of Information Management are involved in or are direct researchers on research projects within the framework of various grant agencies (GAČR, IGA VŠE, MŠMT and others) and projects within specific research. In recent years, a number of scientific and development projects have been addressed.

Publication activities

Members of the Department of Information Management present the results of their research both domestically and internationally at conferences, in journals, monographs and teaching textbooks. A selection of these publications can be found in the InSIS information system.

Pedagogical activities

The department teaches subjects in the full-time and combined forms of study, and in both levels of study, the Bachelor and Master levels. The lecture course Knowledge Management, which is taught in English, is also regularly taught. A list of all currently taught subjects can be found in the information system.

The department is the guarantor of the specialization Information Management, where elective courses developing a basic offer of knowledge are taught. Selected subjects are also offered to those interested from other specializations. The members of the department have secured the faculty entrance exams from `Pre-Requisite of Managerial Decision Making`. We are actively and systematically involved in teaching courses for members of the public and commercial courses, and those falling within the framework of the University of the Third Age. Bachelor theses and diploma projects led by the department frequently are awarded by the Dean or Rector.

Cooperation with internships

The members of the department traditionally work with many external bodies within their expertise. In the past we managed to implement a number of projects with the public authorities (optimising transport in urban areas and territorial communities) and companies in the private sector. In the ‘Practical Experience ‘class, students are offered positions in regional companies where the students can gain specialized knowledge in real environment

Beyond specific communication and informal collaboration with external companies, it is also possible to count the annual meetings of students and graduates from the Information Management specialization, which generates a great deal of useful information within the scope of specialized and social programmes and practical suggestions to aid recent graduates’ entrance into the labour market.
