  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    Graduates have such managerial skills as effective use of time, successful negotiation with business partners, creating public image, effective leadership, effective motivation of colleagues, the art of dealing with people and developing general communication skills, that enables them to hold leading management positions.

    Thanks to the specialized focus of the studied subjects, the graduates of the field have opened possibility of realization in commercial enterprises in general (e.g. in higher management positions), or its specialized sections (e.g. purchasing, marketing, trade, etc.). Graduating from a Master's degree program enables graduates to deepen the general knowledge base of economic sciences and to link them with practical application. The demand for graduates with managerial and business-economics skills is nowadays very timely given the rapidly changing business conditions and growing competition. This requires managers and professionals with a broad insight and ability to apply expertise to everyday practice, to support other people in the same. At the same time, however, graduates of a Master's degree program also need a deeper, specialized knowledge of selected areas of management and business economics, which their business economics and management provide through compulsory-selectable blocks. The overall universality of the study (including the previous Bachelor's) enables graduates to apply in a wide variety of diverse businesses (above all) and organizations and represents a significant competitive advantage of the program.

  • Practical Training

    The studies do not require the obligatory practical training of students in enterprises and leaves this area at the initiative of the students. However, ESF MU actively supports internships - students have the opportunity to enroll in the course Praxe (Practical Training) and, if necessary, to take advantage of pre-arranged positions in enterprises. Within this subject, usually three-week practice is rated by credits, but does not give an excuse from the compulsory parts of teaching subjects. Another option is the foreign work placements realized through the Erasmus+ program.

  • Goals of Theses

    The standard length of the Master's thesis is 60-80 pages (without attachments). Diploma theses have usually two basic parts - theoretical, representing the professional background, and practical, solving a defined managerial problem in a particular enterprise. The student demonstrates his ability to write a comprehensive technical text, including the ability to find, analyze and propose a concrete solution to the practical problem of a real enterprise, which can not generally be described as trivial (i.e. its solution requires deeper analysis). The guidelines for the elaboration of the thesis are regulated by the ESF Directive No. 9/2017 on the creation, submission, publication and evaluation of the final (bachelor's and diploma) theses.

  • Access to Further Studies

    The graduate of the Master's Program can (after fulfilling the conditions of admission) continue in the doctoral study program Business Economics and Management, respectively in another related program.
