We care about the opinion of our students

"One advantage of studying at a private school is the personal approach and small group size. This might sound like a cliché, but it's true. We have really close relationships with our professors: they treat us like equals and are available for conversations, even outside of regular business hours."

- Petr, Business Economics and Management

"Our teachers are all highly skilled. Many of them run their own business and have years of practical experience to teach from. They encourage us to look behind the obvious and do our own things, helping to become entrepreneurs rather than employees."

- Ludvík, Business Economics and Management
