The Ceske Budejovice University of Technology and Economics opened its doors to students only in 2006, making it the youngest public university in the Czech Republic specializing in economic and technical disciplines.
This university has always been very popular not only with applicants but also with employers. The reason for this is its location, because the city in which it is located is in the South Moravian region. All managers of these organizations regularly need to hire highly qualified specialists in the economic and technical sphere, for this reason, it has never been difficult for local students to find a place for internships, traineeships and even jobs. Up until 2014, the university offered only 3-year bachelor's degree programs. 8 years after the opening of the university, the admission of applicants for master's programs began. In addition to the standard levels of education, the school provides an opportunity to study for two years in the European Council of Business Administration program, upon completion of which the student receives an MBA degree.
At the moment, the Ceske Budejovice University of Technology and Economics (or University of Technology and Economics) is still gaining popularity. Thanks to its support, it actively conducts research activities, develops the latest programs for student education, and introduces the latest teaching methods.
Studies are conducted in the Czech language in the following specialties:
Each of the directions is quite popular among applicants.
In addition to unique specializations and highly qualified teaching staff, future students are also attracted by the new lecture halls and dormitory rooms available at the university.
The Ceske Budejovice University of Technology and Economics combines the popular programs of the Graduate School of Economics in Prague and the Czech Technical University. At the same time, accommodation in a small town is much cheaper than in Prague.
