The Faculty of Economics was established by separating from the Faculty of Agriculture on January 1, 2007. The faculty has adopted the European standards for university education and research and fully accepts the challenges of structural change and innovation in business with the aim of supporting regional economic and demographic stabilization. All three educational level study programmes – undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral – at the faculty respect the requirements consequent on the increasing globalization of study programmes and will offer tuition in chosen subjects, particularly within the postgraduate study programmes in foreign languages, such as English and German.
Students of the study programme Management of Commerce spent two days, the 24th and 25th November 2016, on a study trip to Linz, the capital of Upper Austria. The trip was organized for students studying the subjects Destination Management and Marketing and Marketing Tools in Tourism. Teaching in both subjects is undertaken using project form.
