Prague, July 10, 2020 – The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague has received full accreditation for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in Economics. UCT now ranks among other prestigious Czech and foreign universities which consider this specialisation an integral part of their pedagogical and research activities. In line with its traditional academic disciplines in science and technology, the programmes in economics aim at reaching the highest standard of quality.
“The outcome of such study is logical - attractive career prospects and deep knowledge will generate the best capital for every student for the future. Study at UCT has fundamentally been and will be challenging, which applies to all the degree programmes including the newly accredited ones”, UCT rector Matějka says.
The degree programmes in Economics and Management (BSc) and Sectoral Management (MSc) will be guaranteed by an experienced team of 60 academics who previously established and implemented similarly focused academic programmes at the MIAS School of Business CTU in Prague.
Applicants interested in the field of economics and management will be given the opportunity to receive an education at the second highest ranked university in the Czech Republic according to QS World University Rankings, to gain an attractive graduate profile sought out by employers, and to undertake further studies at prestigious Czech and foreign universities. The establishment of both degree programmes is officially supported by the Association of Chemical Industry and the Federation of Food and Drink Industries of the Czech Republic among other organisations.
This is not the first time that an economics degree programme has been accredited at UCT as one of the faculties used to bear the word ‘economics’ in its title in the 1960s. Many of its graduates are still employed in top management of large companies and organizations.
Submission of applications for the above-mentioned degree programmes are open from today until August 8 via the portal business.vscht.cz. Applicants with secondary school grade point averages between 1.0- 1.5 will be accepted automatically; all others may take the on-line entrance exam in the following weeks.
The winter term courses begin on September 14, 2020
