Investments in education lead to development of qualifications The College of Entrepreneurship and Law (Vysoká škola podnikání a práva, VŠPP) has been a successful institution on the market for 17 years already, currently offering studies in the three biggest Czech cities; Prague, Brno, and Ostrava. The MBA programme is taught in Ostrava and in Prague on Spálená Street, at the Faculty of Law. The school started a unique MBA programme for managers and entrepreneurs: the course respects the students’ busy schedules, their personal obligations as well as their individual needs. “The course is more than just a completion of a college degree. We offer learners the development of those skills they feel they will best use on the job market, and we relate them to practical skills and a friendly individual approach,” says Ing. Miroslav Lorenc, Ph.D., who is responsible for ICT Management and Project Management at the College of Entrepreneurship and Law. MBA programme through discussions In the MBA programme, students choose their own combination of modules, make
use of a professional coach, and develop their soft skills. The MBA programme does not consist of traditional lectures and seminars; it is a platform for students to exchange practical experience while being led by professional experts. Each student is addressed with a personalized approach so that the school might comply with the demands and original expertise of each individual. “The combination of theory and practice is ideal, helping to distinguish the good from the excellent. The MBA is still considered a significant feature in the job market competition,” says Jaroslav Holý, MBA, Marketing Manager of the College of Entrepreneurship and Law.
Why add MBA to the university degree? “It is not the title MBA itself but the readiness to implement the knowledge and skill acquired through the MBA programme studies,” Lorenc says. “I believe that our current students understand very well that titles and degrees do not matter much outside the public administration. The modules they choose to study in the MBA programme enhance the competence and know-how easily applied on the job market. In my modules, I want to highlight analytical skills, critical thinking, efficient communication, and project management.” Another run of the Programme opens 15 September 2018.
