International Business Academy

The Business Academy field of study includes two specialisations: legal and economic.

63-41M/02 Business Academy (legal specialisation)

This specialisation reduces maths classes to a necessary minimum as required by the Framework Educational Programme for business academies but which is still sufficient for general knowledge. On the other hand, more emphasis is placed on the teaching of logic and general studies requirements, which are required for admission to law schools. The academy puts emphasis also on social sciences, which are more commonly taught at grammar schools. Unlike with general grammar schools, there is no need to teach natural sciences on such a scale; the students then may focus on practical skills, especially those of economic nature. The classes at our school of economics are participated by professors and associate professors from faculties of law. This includes also the mastering of two foreign languages.

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

63-41M/02 Business Academy (economic specialisation)

The Business Academy’s specialisation reduces the classes of social and natural sciences to a minimum level as required by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, boosting especially economic disciplines.
