Basic information about the study
The goal of the Sales Management specialisation is to use theoretical economic, managerial and marketing disciplines to acquire the skills needed by every manager in an international environment, while understanding the operation of companies on a domestic and international level. Specialised courses provide a deeper understanding of fields such as marketing, management, marketing communication, PR, marketing research or social communication.
The programme is based on combining theoretical and practical skills. Lecturers often use case studies or interactive management games to allow students to have an in-depth understanding of the given issue. Students gain practical managerial skills not only during their compulsory internships in domestic or foreign companies engaged in international trade, but also in terms of courses which include regular meetings with experts in the field.
The fifth semester includes a compulsory internship. to increase the employment opportunities of graduates. Students most often choose ŠKODA AUTO for their internships as well as other partner companies of ŠKODA AUTO University or foreign companies,
primarily within the Volkswagen Group, with the support of the Erasmus+ programme. Under the Erasmus programme, students can also spend one or two semesters at one of more than 60 partner universities. ŠKODA AUTO University also offers very interesting projects outside of Erasmus allowing students to choose from destinations such as China, India, South Korea or the USA for their studies abroad.
Graduates can further expand their knowledge and skills in a follow-on Master’s degree programme International marketing. Given the extended and comprehensive foundation of all Bachelor’s programmes, students will be ready to study other Master’s degree programmes offered by the school as well.
The specialisation is designed for students with analytical thinking who would like to gain an insight into corporate processes on a national and international level.
