The Department of Management covers a wide spectrum within the field of management; as crucial, we consider the teaching of compulsory subjects at bachelor and master levels of a guaranteed branch Management and Business Economics directed at different approaches to the management of organizations, management of human resources, logistics and operational management, project, strategic and process management. These pillars are the basis for a number of further optional subjects enabling students to extend their professional profile, e.g. in the field of management of quality, management of changes, entrepreneurial ethics, communication, development of managerial techniques and skills, systematic building of company culture, in the sphere of small and medium size business or in the motivation and stimulation of workforce.
Graduates of the branch of Management and Business Economics acquit themselves well in managerial positions in both private and public administration. The Department of Management also participates significantly in the teaching of other branches in the Faculty of Economics and in other faculties of the USB in České Budějovice. Lessons are often completed by lectures from outside experts.
