The MBA - Master of Business Administration studies have been carried out at the Faculty of Business and Management (FBM), Brno University of Technology (BUT) since 1993. More than 867 managers have completed these studies. Over the entire period, importance of holding the MBA degree has been growing, especially at a time when a well-educated manager with a high information and knowledge background is gaining a competitive advantage, which can be used not only in the Czech Republic but also worldwide.
US - MBA program that we organize with the University of St. Francis in Illinois is implemented on the basis of internationally respected standards with 50% participation of lecturers from the USA, who not only represent mentioned American university, but are also fully active managers within the broad sphere of business in the USA. These lessons use high-quality American textbooks with a number of case studies and games. The program is accredited by the American Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
The team of lecturers from the USA is complemented not only by experienced lecturers from FBM BUT who mostly grew in business, have completed the MBA program themselves and have several years of teaching experience within these programs, but also experienced managers from practice. Often the individual approach of lecturers to each student gives a guarantee that the investment in this education will return in increasing the value of the graduate in the Czech and global labor market.
Graduates of this prestigious MBA program acquire current knowledge and skills, especially in the field of management, marketing, corporate finance, competitiveness and risk management. The study program is designed to create preconditions not only for the exchange of business and corporate experience and their confrontation, but also for establishing business, cooperation and personal relationships.
An interesting complement to the entire program is the opportunity to complete a selected module (course) personally at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois, where students also have a great opportunity to visit Chicago, which is only an hour's drive from the university. Furthermore, students can experience a baseball game at a local stadium, taste real Chicago pizza, go to Starved Rock National Park and much more.
Let me assure you that your decision to complete management education in the form of US - MBA studies at FBM BUT not only pleases us, but also obliges us. We are ready to help you in your education and I believe that this internationally accredited program will be a significant milestone in your lifelong management education process.
