Programme description

New two-year full time Master´s programme taught in English is opened at the Faculty of Finance and Accounting, University of Economics, Prague

Master study programme in Finance and Accounting is opened since September 2015. 

 

University of Economics in Prague

University of Economics Prague is successful within international cooperation. The university currently cooperates with more than 200 partner universities located on four different continents. There are approximately 700 outgoing students annually with an even higher number of foreign students accepted from abroad. VŠE is a member of numerous international organizations and networks such as the international strategic alliance CEMS (Global Alliance in Management Education) and PIM (Partnership in International Management).

Our Mission

Open access to all, who seek a career in an international environment and who wish to become banking and financial services managers, financial analysts, chief accountants, auditors or consultants.

Our Aim

The aim of the study programme "Finance and Accounting" is to gain knowledge in finance and accounting at the level of the standard finance and accounting master's degree programme at the Faculty of finance and accounting at the University of Economics.

The core profile will focus on issues of:

  • corporate management,
  • accounting and corporate finance (performance management, internationally recognized principles of financial reporting, corporate finance, financial derivatives, business valuation),
  • audit,
  • taxation,
  • economics,
  • ethics,
  • international finance,
  • and last but not least on the issue of European economic integration.

 

The programme, which is a merge of two separate disciplines – finance and accounting, is unusual at the Czech universities, but it is comparable to the similar programmes at foreign universities. Concurrent focus on finance and accounting also increases the graduates’ chances on the labour market as their wider range offers them more job possibilities as well as their greater flexibility.

 

The Future

The graduate will gain ability to use theoretical information in hands-on experience, with particular emphasis on the ability to critically evaluate the problem and its analysis, to propose solutions to that problem and to use teamwork skills in solving tasks. The graduates will be able, both nationally and particularly in the international environment and context, to practice a profession based on finance and accounting at the corporate level. They will also understand the modern trends in corporate management and will understand the context of the company's operation in terms of pan-European economic and social development as well as corporate social responsibility. Acquired competencies and the way of working during their studies (emphasis on analysis and troubleshooting suggestions) will enhance the ability of graduates to adapt to changing conditions of a labour market and job changes during their working lives.
