Would you like to start a master’s degree programme this September (2015) and are looking for an opportunity to apply now, during summer 2015?

We might have something for you!

The Faculty of Informatics and Statistics (FIS) of the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) offers two master’s degree programmes fully taught in English:

  • Information Systems Management (ISM)
  • Quantitative Economic Analysis (QEA)

And we are pleased to announce that admissions for the academic year 2015/2016 reopened on Wednesday 1 July 2015; new applications can be submitted until Friday 21 August 2015.


Who can apply?

The minimum admission requirements are:

  • Bachelor’s/undergraduate degree: finished or to be completed by the end of August 2015.
    • Should be in a related field of study: IT disciplines for ISM, quantitatively oriented disciplines for QEA.
    • Note: If awarded by an institution not accredited in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary or Poland, you will need to get the degree recognized by a Czech academic recognition authority and produce the certificate of recognition by the beginning of your first master’s semester.
  • English language knowledge.

Admission requirements are the same for both national and international candidates.

However, if you need visa/residence permit for staying legally in the Czech Republic, you should carefully consider if it is still feasible to organize everything so you could start studying in Prague in mid-September 2015.

How to apply?

It is easy. There are just 3 steps you need to take by 21 August 2015:

  1. Submit an e-application (online).
  2. Pay the application fee (50 EUR).
  3. Send your application package via e-mail. (Required documents are: documents concerning bachelor’s studies and English skills, copy of passport/national ID, CV, motivation letter; recommendation letter if available.)

The next step will be taking an admission exam (administered via e-mail, dates are individual depending on when you finish your application).
