Faculty profile

The Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) at the University of Economics, Prague is among the most respected schools in Central and Eastern Europe focused on the field of management. The Faculty of Business Administration has as the only faculty in the Czech Republic the prestigious international EQUIS accreditation. 

This means FBA ranks among the 1% best business schools in the world. EQUIS accreditation is the most comprehensive institutional accreditation system for business and management schools. The mission of the faculty is to create and transfer knowledge, develop skills and shape attitudes to successful management of companies and organizations in a changing global environment.

The FBA’s graduates find employment in multinational corporations, small and mediumsized enterprises, and cultural and non-profit organizations, or they establish their own businesses.

Two of our programs – International Management (CEMS MIM) and Management (previously Business Economics and Management) – are regularly placed in the prestigious global Financial Times Ranking for business education. Furthermore, the FBA offers 13 minor specializations. Among them are, for example, Consulting, Human Resource Management, Quality management and Lean Six Sigma, Logistics, Marketing, Managerial psychology and sociology, Entrepreneurship, Project Management, Turnaround Management or Sales Management.

Study Programmes

 

The faculty provides an MBA program accredited by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). This international accreditation attests to the high level of education, which is in compliance with demanding international requirements. Therefore, the MBA at the Faculty of Business Administration is on par with MBA programs in Western Europe. In addition, FBA has excellent relations with the private sector and works with highly talented students in the Honors Academia program.

Internationalization of Study

Applicants can study programs offered in English and Russian. In addition, classes in foreign languages are mandatory for students of all fields, as well as programs offered in the Czech language.

Many students use the opportunity to participate in exchange programs with the FBA’s partner schools abroad, study at any foreign university as “free mover” or to take part in international summer schools. The CEMS Master in International Management program (CEMS MIM) is the FBA’s key postgraduate, pre-experience degree offered in English.

It is open to a select group of students enrolled in a Master’s program in one of 30 global leading institutions offering postgraduate management studies. The faculty cooperates with such top-class universities such as the University of St. Gallen, London School of Economics and Political Science, Università Bocconi, HEC Paris, ESADE Business School, or the University of Sydney. The exclusiveness of the program is further heightened by the fact that only one business school per country can be a member, and its quality is thoroughly assessed.
