Seven Reasons to Study at the Faculty of Management
What are our strengths?
1. Strong brand
The University of Economics in Prague is one of the most prestigious schools in the Czech Republic and abroad. Through meticulous and consistent work, the European Commission awarded the university for the years 2013 – 2016 with the ECTS and DS labels for awarding a diploma supplement in the English language to all graduates. The University of Economics is included in the Financial Times assessment, and within the Eduniversal Ranking project, it has long been ranked as one of the best business schools in Central and Eastern Europe.
2. Top education
The Faculty of Management offers to interested students a three-tier study programme – bachelor, master and doctoral degrees in both regular and combined form.
3. Study what you need
Due to the modular structure of the study programme, each student can choose to study according to their own interests and preferences and to specialize further.
4. Finding employment
In January 2013, the Faculty of Management ranked first among the economic faculties in the Czech Republic in terms of the lowest number of unemployed graduates. Only 0.5 % of graduates were unable to find work (Hospodářské noviny: the least number of unemployed is from among the graduates of the Faculty of Management of the University of Economics in Jindřichův Hradec [online], 29. 1. 2013, http://zpravy.ihned.cz/cesko-skolstvi/c1-59214600-ekonomicke-vysoke-skoly-srovnani-platy-nezamestnanost). The Faculty of Management defended the same position in the 2006 survey (Lidové noviny, Ranking: Graduates of AMU and the University of Economics are the most successful in finding jobs, 03.10.2006, page 1. ISSN 1213-1385). Our graduates have been successful in finding long-term employment.
5. Study abroad
The University of Economics in Prague cooperates with more than 240 partner universities spread across four continents. More than 800 of our students are sent abroad each year, and a similar number of foreign students are accepted. The University of Economics is also a member of a number of international organizations and university networks, such as CEMS (Global Alliance in Management Education) and PIM (Partnership in International Management).
6. Modern campus
Since 2009, when the new Library and Information Centre was established, the building of the Faculty of Management has undergone several waves of reconstruction, turning it into one of the most contemporary and state-of-the-art facilities in the Czech Republic. The modernized dormitory is situated only five minutes walk from the school. It offers sufficient capacity (accommodation was provided to every student who applied for it last year).
7. Family atmosphere
The Faculty of Management is the smallest faculty of the University of Economics, which gives it a “family” character. New students are taken care of by their older colleagues (designated patrons) who advise them on the organization of their studies and other issues. Jindřichův Hradec is a quiet town situated in the South Bohemia Region, featuring one of the largest chateau complexes in the Czech Republic. It is a town with a colourful cultural life and many other interesting things that students can enjoy.
