Management Study Programme
Study programme overview
The follow-up master’s degree programme in Management significantly deepens the theoretical knowledge in the field of management and prepares students for top management positions in all types of companies and organizations. Unlike the bachelor’s study, emphasis is placed on the specifics of individual fields of business. Therefore, in order to increase their expertise and a deeper understanding, students choose one of five minor fields. The selected filed then aims the focus only on those specific areas of management in which the students intend to work after graduation. In the follow-up master’s degree programme, great emphasis is placed on critical thinking and a scientific-research approach to problem solving. Graduates of the Faculty of Management find employment in the business, public and non-profit sectors without any problems.
The study is suitable for all those who want to deepen their knowledge of managerial skills and knowledge. In recent years, many employers have been purposefully looking for graduates who have successfully studied at least once at a business university. Therefore, the follow-up master’s study is not necessarily intended only for bachelor graduates of the fields of management, economics and similar, but for anyone who wants to add a managerial superstructure to their knowledge from unrelated fields. Over the years, many graduates of medical, technical or humanity fileds successfully completed the Faculty of Management. For those interested in studying the follow-up master’s, the faculty regularly organizes preparatory courses at the beginning of the calendar year. The courses introduce the applicants to the basics of the economics and management theorz and prepare them for the admission exam.
This programme can be studied in full-time and combined form. Full-time study is a traditional form of study in which students attend classes on a daily basis. Classes are usually in the form of lectures and exercises. The combined form of study is then intended primarily for those who want to combine university studies with work or other obligations (for example, concurrent full-time study at another university). During the semester, students participate in 4 intensive weekend workshops at the premises of the Faculty of Management, the rest of their studies is in the form of self-study.
Students of both forms have a fixed schedule for the first semester of study, which makes it much easier for them to enter university life. Each subsequent semester, they can choose the subjects at their discretion. Thanks to this, they can partially adapt the schedule to suit them in terms of content and time.

Practice during the study
As more and more emphasis is placed on internships and practise by future potential employers, we offer students of the Management study programme to already gain practice during their studies. The faculty has built a stable partner network who regularly offer students the opportunity for so-called professional practice. This is an optional part of the study, which always depends on the personality and individual time possibilities of the student. Another opportunity to gain internship is the annual Job Fair, which is organized by students of the Faculty of Management.
During their studies, students have an invaluable opportunity to participate in short-term and long-term exchange stays or internships abroad. The Prague University of Economics and Business has more than 250 partner universities around the world, the students thus have a wide range of options when choosing their desired destination country. In addition, the Faculty of Management provides all students who decide to complete an exchange study stay or an abroad internship with above-standard financial support (scholarship) beyond the scope of regular support, which makes it significantly different not only from other universities but also from other faculties of the Prague University of Economics and Business.
Equipment and facilities
The premises of the Faculty of Management has undergone a number of renovations in recent years, making it one of the most modern and best-equipped faculties in the Czech Republic. It offers students above-standard study and leisure facilities with a number of top equipment and trifles that are not a standard at other universities. All classrooms are fully modernized and offer high comfort even during longer classes (for example, there are electrical outlets for each and every study place). The entire building is covered by the eduroam wireless network signal, to which students automatically have free access. There are a number of quiet chill-out zones throughout the building, which students use between lectures.
The modern library of the Faculty of Management with its three floors offers not only an extensive collection of professional literature, but also a number of spacious coworking booths, which students use for self-study, individual and group assignments or work on their own projects. There are also a number of computer labs available to students, some of which they can use at any time outside of regular classes. In addition, each student has a unique opportunity to use up to five free licenses for all software in the Microsoft Office 365 office suite or to obtain other applications or versions of Microsoft operating systems free of charge.
