Basic information

Doctoral studies are the highest level of higher education. They are characterised by an individualised form of studies and independent scientific-research activity of a postgraduate student.

It runs in single-discipline form only, based on an individual study plan, under the guidance of a supervisor. The standard duration of studies in all doctoral study programmes is four years.

All doctoral programmes at the Faculty of Economics and Administration can be studied in Czech and English, the programme of Finance can be studied in German as well. Studies in Czech programmes are free; studies in foreign programmes are charged.

Studies are concluded by a state doctoral examination and dissertation defence. Following successful completion of studies, graduates are awarded the Ph.D. degree (philosophiæ doctor) to be written after their names.

Forms of study

Doctoral studies at the MU Faculty of Economics and Administration in all study programmes are offered both full-time and part-time.

In addition to scientific research duties, full-time students also have other duties, including participation in lectures, organisation of conferences, the faculty’s educational and other activities, etc. All duties are distributed on individual working days according to the student’s schedule.

Full-time students receive a monthly scholarship to support studies in doctoral studies programmes for the standard duration of studies.

The part-time form of study is more often chosen by those applicants who also have other duties (e.g. employment or family), which do not enable them to be present at the faculty on a daily basis. For this reason, their participation in lectures, organisation of conferences, the faculty’s educational and other activities is not mandatory.
