Through the MBA program study, the managers acquire a comprehensive system of knowledge and skills needed for building a successful career in business and management, including public administration, especially in education and human capital management.

Their ability to synthesize theoretical knowledge and its practical application in the managerial environment is established by the defense of the final thesis.

International students are welcomed to study at the University of Jana Amose Komenskeho in Prague within the Erasmus+ program. We are also sure that you will gain new experience and make new friends here in Prague.

Jan Amos Komenský University Prague has gradually attained a stable position within the tertiary education market as the largest Czech institution of its kind and the first private University (as defined by the Czech Higher Education Act), successfully filling the gaps of the national tertiary education system both in terms of subjects offered and the regional coverage.

The University offers fully accredited university studies in the Czech language, including degree courses in English (primarily in European Economic and Public Administration) as well as certified life-long learning courses. Lectures take place every week or every second week. We also provide tutorials. Tutorial means that the students do not attend lectures (the lectures are in the Czech language). However, they are given independent projects (semestral work) to do individually and are assigned a supervisor who provides consultation and study support in English. However, we recommend that all Erasmus students attend the Courses taught in the English language to experience academic life at the JAKU fully. We have been active in research and innovations participating in various national and international projects as well as being a member of various associations such as the European University Association. Our research activities cover, in particular, special education, adult education, human resources development, methodologies of education, economy and public administration, and communication & media.

As a continuation in the long-standing tradition of the Komenský Academy, a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that was engaged in adult education in 1990’ the Jan Amos Komenský University Prague’s systematic development is based on cooperation with professional workplaces in both the Czech Republic and abroad. Established in 2001, the Jan Amos Komenský University Prague offers innovative programs and has a continuously expanding student base, encompassing around 5 000 students. More programs are currently being developed, so please check back regularly.
