Efficient company management

Managerial expertise and competence are those factors which always bring competitive advantage and should be prioritised at every company. That is why the modules dealing with this area aim to familiarise all students from the middle and senior management with the latest management theories.
The selection of subjects guarantees that students:

  • Improve their managerial competence
  • Develop their capacity to introduce new solutions to improve management processes
  • Improve the way in which they create their image as well as manage their development and the development of other employees

Thanks to this choice of subjects the students also learn about the basic categories of problems related to management and get an overview of the following topics: selected management methods and techniques, total quality management in accordance with applicable regulations, business ethics and the importance of informal organisations in managing a company. Skills acquired in the area of management and entrepreneurship can be tested during a complex business game, whereas setting up individual and group projects helps students to better identify and analyse problems to be able to suggest relevant systemic and operational solutions.
