Department of Business and Commerce
- Business and commerce are the cornerstones of society and have been inextricably linked with the history of mankind. Whether it consists in selling ice-cream or developing highly-specialized IT software, the essential pillars of each line of business are very similar.
- The curriculum therefore builds upon the experience and practical knowledge of small entrepreneurs, merchants and sole traders, as well as small and medium entrepreneurs and world leaders of the past, like A. Carnegie, H. Ford, T. Baťa, S. Jobs, and of the present, like J. Bezos, E. Musk and others.
- Students are going to grasp the principles of doing business, they will be able to assess the advantages and disadvantages of various legal forms of business (such as sole traders, private limited liability companies or joint-stock companies) with regard to their establishment, operation and profitability. They will be able to found their own company and learn to operate it profitably. They will acquire skills necessary for maintaining relations with clients with a view to establishing lasting business friendships, learning how to be emphatic, how to understand clients´ needs and reservations and how to choose suitable means of communication and approach to solving clients´ problems.
- Graduates apply the acquired knowledge and skills in business at top positions (CEO, CFO, COO…) as well as at managerial and business administration positions.
