Modules you will study
Management Theory and Practice
This module will explore management theory and practice, and will critically examine a range of approaches to the study of management and managing, including the findings from some of those studies.
Managing People in Organisations
As organisations recognise the need to tap into the hidden resources of their increasingly skilled and knowledgeable employees to reach an ultimate potential. The question is raised - how do they do this? This module will examine the question through the view of human resource management, both as an academic discipline and as a professional practice, and will explore the various dimensions of this question.
Managing Operations and Finance
This module examines the principles and practice of financial and operations management within organisations. It focuses upon the need to manage resources efficiently within a dynamic environment and to demonstrate its achievement through the provision and use of operational and financial information. The module reflects the environment within which organisations find themselves and examines the pressures and impact this has upon organisational control.
This module will reinforce and critically examine the importance of an organizational marketing orientation. Marketing will be approached from the key perspective of a "customer-focus" - describing the relevance and the practical application of this perspective across organizational functions while also approaching the management of the marketing process throughout an organization.
The Strategic Business Environment
Through extensive use of case studies and issue analysis this module will explore one of the main leadership challenges facing organisations today, how to develop strategies that reflect changes in the external business environment.
The module will explore the key concepts, theories, contexts, competencies and techniques involved in the process of strategic decision-making and strategic management of the organisation.
Managing Across Cultures
This module will make aware the key theories and concepts that underpin the subject of management across cultures and it will expose new and challenging aspects of managing in an increasingly global business environment. In addition to the theory the module will develop a more strategic view of cross cultural management and will consider the practical relationships between culture and leadership, culture and marketing and doing business internationally.
Dissertation & Management Research
These two modules work hand in hand to complete your master´s programme in International Management.
The first, Dissertation, requires individuals to integrate learning and development and synthesise knowledge and understanding of theory and practice through its application to organisational issues, which are demonstrably concerned with development within the organisation(s).
Management Research serves two purposes: firstly, it will provide course participants with an understanding of the processes involved in conducting effective research and, secondly, it will provide a foundation of knowledge which will facilitate the design and completion of a dissertation.
Consultation and advice
The first step to enrollment at Prague College is a chance to discuss the programs and options at length with a study advisor. Many students schedule appointments at the college or email their ideas and requests to us.
This is a chance for you to get as much information as you can, and to discuss your options in a friendly and helpful way.
If we think Prague College is the right solution for you,and if you are satisfied with the study plan we work out together, then you will be invited to the next step...
Submit application form and supporting documentation
During the introductory discussion, you will get detailed information about the documents required to apply to Prague College.
If you decide to apply, and if we have not had a formal interview during step one, then we will schedule an application interview with you after you apply.
This interview is best done in person, but if you are not currently in Prague, then sometimes interviews can be arranged by phone.
The interview is probably the most important part of the application process.
Since there are no university entrance examinations in the British higher education system, this is the key point where we can decide if you are a suitable candidate for the program you have chosen.
Of course, in many cases we have already had considerable discussions with you already by email and telephone, so you will probably be well-prepared for the formal interview.
After the interview, and after you have submitted all documentation required, we will be able to make a quick decision on whether to offer you a place at Prague College - usually within five to seven working days.
In some cases, we may ask for additional documents or references.
And if you are asking for transfer credit, or for consideration of academic credit for courses completed elsewhere, or for experience gained through employment, then a final decision may take somewhat longer.
Nonetheless, if a final offer cannot be made quickly, then we will try to make a conditional offer as soon as possible.
The most common case for a conditional offer would be for students who are still in secondary school and expecting to graduate. We could, and generally would make an offer conditional on you passing or achieving a certain grade in your current school.
Pay deposit or first semester tuition
If you receive an offer from Prague College and decide to accept, then it is time to reserve your place on the program. This is done by paying a deposit, or in the case of an international student applying for a visa, a full semester payment. International students are provided documents for the visa application after making this payment, and the visa application process can be started as well.
Some programs fill up many months before the start of the semester, so this payment is crucial to ensure that you can start at Prague College as soon as possible.
If your offer comes less than six weeks before the start of the semester, then you generally are expected to pay the first semester tuition completely to reserve your place.
Get ready to start
If you are applying from inside the Czech Republic or the EU, then at this point you are fully prepared to start your program. Your study adviser will continue to help you with any questions you may have, and to prepare you for the start of your studies.
Your first event at Prague College will be New Student Orientation.
International students must still wait for the visa, but after it arives, then they too can prepare for their arrival and start of studies.
* ELSA (which can be done at Prague College)
If you have recently taken a different internationally recognised English language exam - Czech State Language Exams, Cambridge First Certificate, Cambridge Advanced English and so on - those results can also be used to assess your current language ability.
