Studying a Business Programme in Czech Republic
The Business programmes in Czech Republic today are quite widespread and demanded. The best business programmes offer you practical experience in link with theoretical knowledge. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is one of the most popular Master-degree programs related to business and is taught and approved worldwide.
In Czech Republic it is also possible to get the MBA degree in different ways. Doing it as a full time study programme it takes 12- 14 months to get the degree, depending on programme, region and university. It is also possible to do the MBA as half-time studies. Then it is possible to keep working in one’s company and study at evenings or at the weekend to get the degree. Because of the limited study time it therefore takes longer to get the degree.
Those who want to keep working during the MBA studies can also choose another model, called the Executive MBA. In this model the studies take part in an agreement with the employer and are also financed by this. This MBA was made for executive managers and is structured very tight.
A last alterative is given by the Distance Learning, meaning the studying at home. With the internet it is possible and easy to get the necessary documents and one can learn on his or her own at home. This provides a flexible design of the studies but also requires discipline.
Admission requirements for the MBA program are similar to those for normal master degrees. It is necessary to have a finished another studies before, either Bachelor or Diploma degree. In some cases it is possible to avoid the degree with enough practical experience in the subjects. Different as in normal Master programs the MBA is taught at Business Schools instead of universities.
The motivation for a MBA study program is quite similar to the one for a master program, further education in important topics, better opportunities for the career and deepening of one’s knowledge. These studies are often started after some time of practical working. The MBA degree is approved in management-networks but has also become that widespread that the single studies are no longer the way to executive positions. It is also necessary to use the gained knowledge in a positive way.
MBA programmes in Czech Republic are less expensive than in the UK and the USA. But more over: If the “Master of Business Administration” title isn’t that important to you and you would also go for another professional Masters degree (such as a “Diploma in Management” or an advanced “Master of Science”), then Czech Republic offers some very affordable study options.
All the business programmes are financed only by tuition fees. Therefore, fees are to be met by students.
