Study completion

Quality time spent

1. Quality time spent

We offer a different program than you are used to in the Czech Republic – quality time spent is important to us. The program lasts only 3 semesters and there are no boring and lengthy lectures or extensive final theses. On the contrary, you will experience interactive lectures full of real case studies, effective managerial tools and interesting information from practice, which motivates you to new perspectives.

Individual approach

2. Individual approach

For us, you are not just a number in the statistics. Lecturers know who you are and what you do as soon as you enter the classroom. Lecturers from the USA communicate and work with you before your arrival to the classroom. All this in order to provide you with the best education. Thanks to that, you will get a great team of people who will accompany you through your studies.

What will be the value of your MBA degree

3. What will be the value of your MBA degree?

It will be globally recognized! Today, MBA degrees in the Czech Republic are offered by many institutions, but the education is often recognized only in the Czech Republic. As part of the US-MBA studies, you will receive a diploma issued by the prestigious American University of St. Francis of Illinois, thus ensuring international transcendence of its validity. In addition, the study program is ACBSP accredited. This guarantees that we meet international standards required by the American accreditation association.

ACBSP accredited

4. ACBSP accredited

MBA program at the University of St. Francis is accredited by ACBSP - Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, which entitles them to offer and award the degree of Master of Business Administration (MBA). Accreditation also applies to the US-MBA in Brno and guarantees that we meet the required international standards. US-MBA is under the auspices of the University of St. Francis, in accordance with the accreditation conditions and principles of foreign cooperation in educational programs for non-US citizens.

Career growth

According to a research conducted by the FBM BUT in 2018, it was found that 53.8% of graduates experienced an increase in earnings, most often during their studies, by an average of 25% of their original earnings.
