Law in the Global Business Environment
Basic information about the study
The follow-on Master’s degree programme Law in the Global Business Environment builds on a universal basis of business management education applicable not only in the local conditions, but particularly in the international environment. 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 global languages.
The benefit of this specialisation is its unique specialised section, where graduates acquire a broader overview of the principles and rules of private and public law and specialised knowledge of selected fields of economic law – especially in business relations, international, business and EU law focusing on business and protection of fair competition. This specialisation is unique in the education market and it has potential in terms of employment opportunities.
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 are ready to combine knowledge from economics and law. Complete information on the admission procedure and conditions for admission can be found HERE.
