Degree programme objectives

The aim of the study program can be summarized as “second career”. It is intended for professionals in the field of services (cultural, physical education, later also social) or sport who see their professional future in the transition from executive to a managerial position. The content and form of study take into account that students have already gained practical experience in their field, and they are mostly graduates of philosophical, sports or social science faculties. The program complements their profile with the economic and managerial competencies necessary for the management of public institutions, non-profit organizations and small businesses. Multidisciplinarity, obtained by the involvement of participating entities, which are the sister faculties of MU, brings the program a unique quality compared to competing programs. The courses they provide aim to deepen and update students' current knowledge and inspire them to seek and initiate innovative scenarios for the development of institutions they manage. One of the goals of the program is to enable students to apply their practical experience. Emphasis is placed on directly applicable knowledge and skills. As with all such professionally oriented programs, the forms of teaching are chosen to maximize student enrichment by confronting the experience of not only teachers and practitioners but also other students.
