European Business and Finance


Teaching in English.

The European Business and Finance programme is a joint programme of three universities: Nottingham Trent University (GB), Karol Adamiecki University of Economics in Katowice (PL) and Brno University of Technology (CR). The joint programme was accredited in all three countries and is supported by the EU as it is based on the idea of Joint Master Degree studies as one of the outcomes of the Bologna Process. It is the first study programme of its kind in the Czech Republic.

The programme strives to educate specialists in business, trade and finance, with a stress on knowledge of the EU environment. Theoretical knowledge and practical skills of the students are developed in an international context, so that graduates could succeed on management posts in companies operating not only in the Czech Republic but also anywhere in the EU. The curriculum and teaching methods were designed to reflect both theoretical approaches and practical requirements of middle and top managers in the EU. Emphasis is placed in particular on the international and intercultural aspects of study.

The graduate is trained for posts in business entities operating in particular in the EU and posing great professional and managerial demands. The graduate is able to perform critical analyses of problems arising in business processes, financing processes and the business of international companies, to assess them and to propose standard strategic and operative managerial, financial and business solutions, obtained through theoretical study and specific practical knowledge and skills. While mastering practical managerial skills, the graduate will gain an understanding of basic legal and political processes in the EU.
