International Economy and Business

One of the study fields offered by the PRIGO High School is Economy and Business (applied to sports).

63-41M/01 Economy and Business

This field of study is based on the Business Academy’s background, though with a more detailed focus on the practical aspect of studies and life. We prepare our students for their successful completion of the school-leaving examination; we do not expect preparation for university studies to a greater extent. The graduates of this field of study are equipped in economic and legal terms for running their businesses under a trade license or in small and medium-sized business corporations. After the successful completion of their school attendance, they do business directly under their own names or in a larger group, or they continue in their studies at a college that is practice-oriented as well. We closely cooperate with our partner PRIGO College (click here), which specialises in general legal activity. This field of study reduces maths classes to a necessary minimum as required by the Framework Educational Programme for ‘Economy and Business’ but which is still sufficient for general knowledge. Unlike with general grammar schools, there is almost no need to teach natural sciences; the students then may focus on practical skills, especially those of economic nature – and even more intensely as compared to the ‘Business Academy’ field.

The curriculum and the school educational programme can be downloaded here (available in the Czech language only).
