The doctoral study field Applied Informatics focuses on education of theoretically and practically well-prepared professionals with global overview of individual subfields of
informatics, capable of conceptual thinking when creating and using information systems and of bridging between the users’ goals and requirements and the possibilities of information technology.
Central research topics of the field are: relationship between the economic environment and informatics; IS/IT as a tool for competitiveness of an organisation; business information strategy; the role of system integrators; various IS/IT architectures; outsourcing in informatics, etc.The field also covers modern software development methodologies (such as agile approaches) and advanced techniques of data processing (knowledge discovery from databases and web, integration of semantically described data etc.).
The doctoral study is primarily aimed at successful elaboration and defence of a highstandard doctoral thesis, in which theoretical knowledge including an overview of world trends is combined with practical findings.
The high professional quality of the PhD students is mainly achieved through their involvement in research projects of the individual departments, including international cooperation. Successful graduates can find their place within universities, large corporations, but also in public administration. Beside solid familiarity with concrete information technologies they are also characterized by their interdisciplinary view, exact thinking and the capability to formulate and manage complex tasks accomplished in a team collaboration.

Econometrics and operational research
Study field of Econometrics and Operational Research is aimed at education of professionals in the sphere of the development of theory and applications of optimisation
models, econometric modelling and forecasting, mathematical economics, optimal directing and simulation models.
The goal of the field is to train economically educated graduates who can develop and apply methods and models of operational research in tasks of mathematical programming, theory of games, network analysis, multicriteria decision making, theory of inventories and queuing as well as econometric models in microeconomic and macroeconomic analyses.
Professional level of pedagogues participating in teaching process to students at doctoral study field of Econometrics and operational research (above all the departments of econometrics and statistics), as well as relatively large number of professors and readers, enables to offer also a number of specialised and broadly aimed optional subjects besides compulsory ones.

The main goal of Statistics field at doctoral study is the education of top-ranking researchers and specialists with profound statistics education and knowledge of foreign and
domestic literature, able to participate in valuable applications at solving important macroeconomic, banking, firms’ and other problems.
Teaching in doctoral study in the field of statistics is to give the doctoral students not only the view on contemporary development in statistics theory, give them an opportunity of demanding specialised study, but also inform them about new application knowledge and new approaches to transformation of public statistics in the sense of present foreign discussions about this topic. The experience shows that such qualified graduates are very desirable and thus have a very good use.
Professional level of pedagogues participating in teaching process to students at doctoral study field of Statistics (above all the Departments of statistics and probability, economic statistics), as well as a relatively large number of professors and readers, enable to offer also a number of specialised and broadly aimed subjects besides the compulsory ones.
Study field of Statistics broadens the offer of specialized study in the sphere in which there is a clear lack of young (especially), highly qualified professionals. Graduates should
assert themselves not only within public statistics service, but also as qualified experts desiredby all institutions requiring not only professional knowledge of statistics and exact way of thinking but also the ability to formulate more complex tasks, perfect knowledge of work with statistics computer products and economic knowledge.
