Domestic & Corporate Cooperation

Objectives

The School of Management (VŠM) leadership considers it shortsighted to reduce doctoral education to direct pedagogical guidance of the doctoral study body. Our mission lies in making use of and channeling knowledge to the School of Management (VŠM) intellectual capital and disseminating it along further paths so that it can immediately benefit broad sections of public. An optimal combination of theory and practice prompts a fruitful feedback that, inturn, enables us to addres the actual needs of the public; hence, identifying what should make-up part and parcel of our doctoral syllabi and academic research. Over its relatively short existence university has established a versatile and reciprocally beneficial system of links to corporate and organizations. What follows is intended to offer an overview of the philosophy and cooperation at issue.
