Meetings with professionals | Practice
This is not a course per se. This is a default part of each MBA programme we offer. Meetings are to last at least 2-3 weeks by default and are designed to meet as many interesting people while making contacts in fields students are interested in. Whole two-three weeks of field trips and discussions with managers in specific areas are done to enlarge the network of contacts and gain certain experience from colleagues working in the sectors of interest to the MBA programme participants. As this requires 2-3 weeks of visa stay in the Czech Republic, we allow this can be skipped if a candidate proves that he or she already passed a practice related to studied MBA programme.
