MBA with a Concentration in Management

The MBA with a concentration in Management is the traditional course for those seeking a broad knowledge base in their studies. It is ideal for grooming students for a General Management role in any sized company. It is also ideal for students looking to establish their own companies or business operations. The specialist subjects build on the core subjects to provide comprehensive business knowledge.

This 18-month lifelong education MBA program of weekend study (2 weekends per month)* leads to an IACBE-accredited Master's of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of New York in Prague.

Consultancy Project

After completing all courses, students undertake the role of an internal or external consultant and investigate a business problem with the aim of arriving at a feasible solution to the problem identified. In other words, a practical and methodical approach to problem solving, allowing each student to demonstrate their learning’s from throughout the program.

Students will choose a mentor from among their professors to help guide them through the five month process. They will then discuss ideas for the project and come to an agreement based upon one of the following: identify system that is not functioning or needs redesign; identify a problem area that needs a solution; or create a new business. The idea is that a student can combine work and study by identifying an area in their job that either doesn’t work well or needs a totally new solution. The student then conducts primary and secondary research on the problem; analyses their findings and then translates those into a feasible solution to the problem. Basically, the student becomes a business consultant to the company.

The student will turn in sections of the work to their mentors each month for critical feedback to help them streamline their work and stay on target. At the end of five months, the student binds their work and submits it to the mentor for grading.

The UNYP MBA Program is accredited by the American accrediting body, the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), and the Czech Association of MBAs (CAMBAS). UNYP is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) and UNYP is also a member of AACSB and CEEMAN, which we follow for the purpose of observing best practices in teaching business education in other regions of the world.
