3PR Project management

The specialization is intended for students of all study fields at the University of Economics, Prague.

The aim of the minor specialization is to provide a comprehensive program of knowledge, skills development for project management and training for positions in Project Management.

The 3PR Project Management minor specialization reflects the situation in practice when more and more organizations are introducing project management or completely moving to a project organization. They respond to the dynamism of the environment and the need to ensure and maintain their competitiveness. Project management as a professional discipline represents a set of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques that the minor specialization will focus on.

The aim of the 3PR Project Management minor specialization is to provide students with the required knowledge in practice, equip them with methods, techniques and tools and develop their skills that are needed to manage projects in practice, thereby contributing to their success in the labor market.

Students will solve examples, case studies, virtual and real projects in which they will participate in the form of project practice in selected organizations. During the lessons they will have the opportunity to work and discuss with project managers and other practitioners and will be in close contact with representatives and members of project management associations operating in the Czech Republic.

We extensively cooperate with the general sponsor of University of Economics, Prague: Česká spořitelna a.s. on real project assignments.

A very valuable part of the minor specialization is the project internship – students work on real project in a company even during their study, which afterwards helps to start their professional career.

By completing this minor specialization students find jobs in small enterprises, large companies and international corporations within the business sector; in state and local government and other public services in the non-profit sector; in research, sport, culture; at different job positions e.g. as a member of the project team, the head of the project group, the project manager, a member of the Project Management Office.
