„As part of my studies, I receive the latest business knowledge, and in addition to English being the lecture language, I can also elect two other languages, which will make my future work in large companies more efficient. I was looking for a similar major at other public and private universities for a long time.”
„It is an interesting major preparing for future business professions. The course of the studies is very interesting and, most importantly, effective and efficient. I like the fact that there is a small group of students and it is not like traditional studies, where students must memorize thousands of language-specific formulas for colloquia etc.
“I do not regret that I have chosen this major. It is a very good choice for those who want to build their carrier in the field of business and economics. During classes, we receive practical knowledge, which can be applied in future work. I think that the combination of a linguistic profile with an economic one is very good – if you plan to work in different companies or in other countries, knowledge of foreign languages is essential.”
„It is a very practical major, which, in my opinion, prepares for the profession. The study program is prepared in a way to provide the students with as much knowledge and business concepts as possible. One of the best opportunities this major offers is the possibility to undergo an internship in a corporation.”
”It is a University of various possibilities. It is a very practical and useful major! It is not only economics, but also foreign languages. It is a combination which nowadays is most valued. I could not imagine a better major”
“In my opinion, the business and languages major is the best way to begin a business path in international companies. It provides an opportunity to study or work in different regions of the world.”
“I find it amazing that the study major really has been created for the needs of large corporations, which allows us to feel secure about future work. The professors’ attitude and the atmosphere at the university positively influence out learning outcomes. We have great lecturing staff, who have active contact with business as well as first-hand experience and can pass their best and most practical knowledge to us. Also, I really like the course of further studies and the fact that the university has received ACCA accreditation, which was most important to me.”
