The objective of the studies is to provide students with up-to-date knowledge necessary in managing a modern company, as well as to improve students’ managerial skills, that are essential in the efficient management of human resources teams. The study programme is designed for management professionals at any level of the organisational hierarchy, i.e., members of boards of directors and management boards, as well as CEOs, directors, functional managers and specialists. These studies are also addressed to people who run their own business or intend to do so.


Graduates have the knowledge and skills in key business areas within the company and gain a global perspective on the enterprise. The programme provides an excellent opportunity for work-integrated active learning with high-level business professionals and practitioners. Students will acquire knowledge related to the application of modern methods and techniques of human resource, finance, marketing and sales and quality management. They will also be given the opportunity to develop managerial competences such as leadership, assertiveness, negotiation, communication and more. In addition, the assets of this study programme are: interdisciplinarity that translates into the combination of content from different areas in one didactic program; access to expert, practical knowledge provided by entrepreneurs, managing directors, business practitioners, tutors, coaches; developing managerial skills and tools within various programme modules; participation in a managerial simulation game in which the student takes on the role of a manager-entrepreneur running a virtual company and solving real business problems in a case study workshop.
