Basic information about the study
The goal of the follow-on Master’s degree programme International Marketing is to provide a solid base for a future career of top managers in the international environment of industrial companies, consulting companies or companies providing industrial services. The wide scope of a company economist includes intermediate economics, international accounting standards, corporate finance management including aspects of international taxation, global supply chains as well as the negotiation and communication skills and an intermediate level in two world languages.
The marketing specialisation is based on courses such as strategic marketing management, international marketing and more, which include practical applications in the automotive industry. It is the specialisation and the internship opportunities during studies that distinguish the graduates from all other graduates from similar programmes of other universities.
The Diploma Thesis usually deals with theoretical and practical issues based on the needs of industrial practice.
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.
The specialisation is designed for creative people who enjoy working in international environments.
