TEACHING IN THE TIME OF COVID-19

Useful information for the students of the University College of Business in Prague, endowment fund (1 May 2021)

Dear students,

On 21 September 2020 the Health Authority of the City of Prague closed the premises of all universities in Prague to the attendance of students. Following this decision, the University College of Business in Prague switched to the distance form of studying for the 2020/21 academic year.

The distance form of studying at the University College of Business in Prague is carried out within the MS Teams environment according to the published schedule in the University Information System (UIS). For these purposes, you have been sent instructions regarding the use of MS Teams (they can also be found in the UIS).

Another tool for distance learning is the University Information System (especially the Document Server and Submission Office). Teachers and other school staff will also communicate with you by phone or email.

In accordance with the Rector's Measure (HERE) in the period from 1 May to 31 August 2021, individual consultations and examinations may take place at the University College of Business in Prague, i.e. in the presence of one student and one academic staff member (in this case specific confirmation or certificate). In the case of state final examinations, in addition to the affidavit, another confirmation must be submitted (see Rector's Measures).

    Adam KlavíkTourism Management

    I graduated with a bachelor's degree from the College of European and Regional Studies in České Budějovice and transferred to UCB in Prague to do my master's degree. Great choice – UCB is much more like a public school and the quality of lecturers is 100% better. For example, my teacher Mrs. Palatková is someone to know in tourism.

    Jan Šrámek

    At UCB, I learned to be independent and gained experience in the field. Wherever we entered student competitions, we walked away with awards. During my studies I became part of the organizational structure of several projects in tourism. I can't wait to start working full time.

    Petra Benešová

    I graduated from UCB, now I teach here. Much has changed over the years. The school is constantly moving forward, focusing more on gaining practice, the subjects are more professional and tightly focused. Although the competition on the market is huge, UCB is doing very well and I can heartily recommend it.

    Kristína Jíšová

    UCB is one of the few schools in the Czech Republic that really does offer experience. During our studies, we worked on projects where the results were then taken up by the National Monuments Institute. Many lectures were also given by external lecturers, so we learned how things really work in the world.

    She works as a Program Coordinator at Smaller Earth. In 2009, she did an internship in New York. She lived in England for three and a half years and worked for an Australian travel agency. Work never bothered Simona, so when she was given the chance to go to America to work as kitchen help, she didn't hesitate for a moment. She got experience, made new friends, and traveled around the United States with the money she earned. This opened the door to job opportunities in Spain and England. She's working today.

    Jakub Velička

    He studied aviation theory at Oxford Aviation Academy. He completed his practical training in the Czech Republic and Poland. He holds a CPL/ME/IR pilot license. As a child, Jakub dreamed of becoming a pilot one day. He faced a twisting road to it and had to sacrifice a lot. He started off by studying Marketing Communication at the University of Finance and Administration in Prague, then moved to Airline Management at UCB. To save time and money on pilot training, he started his own company. Today he is within reach of his dream.
