Basic study information

The Master’s degree programme Finance in International Business is focused on corporate finance, financial management and the relationships between manufacturing enterprises and the financial sector. It is based on the knowledge of microeconomics and macroeconomics, mathematics, statistics, computer science, accounting, law, taxation and economic and financial management. Specialised courses focus on the fields of financial planning and value management in industrial companies. All of this is based on the application of modern methods and tools of financial management and managerial decision making. Special emphasis is placed on the use of simulations of real decision-making tasks. The programme also respects the marketing, personnel and psychological and social aspects of management.

Students can select a three-month work placement as a part of the block of compulsory elective courses. Work placement is intended primarily for students coming from other universities so that they are able to gain the necessary work experience before completing their studies and thus have better employment opportunities in the Czech Republic and abroad.
Under the Erasmus programme, students can also spend one or two semesters at one of more than 30 partner universities or in one of the Volkswagen Group companies. ŠKODA AUTO University also offers very interesting programmes outside of Erasmus allowing students to choose from destinations such as China, India, South Korea or the USA for their studies abroad.
This specialisation is designed for creative people who enjoy working in international environments and would like to expand their knowledge of corporate finance.
