The following study plans are designed to help students enrolled in Business Management and Finance and Economics and Public Policy programmes to make an effective choice of courses with a view to earning the required number of credits.

Duration of Bachelor's degree programmes

The standard duration of the Bachelor's degree programmes is 6 semesters. Typically, the first five semesters are devoted to coursework, while the last semester is mainly a thesis-writing semester. The coursework consists of reading assignments, written assignments, in-class discussions and in-class presentations.

Courses are divided into compulsory, selective and elective ones. Compulsory courses constitute the core of the programme. All of them must be completed in the course of study, and it is not possible to omit them. The number of selective courses taken must be such that the credit requirements for selective courses are fulfilled (more in the study plan). Elective courses are courses of student's interest and can be chosen from any faculty of Masaryk University. Bachelor students also have the obligation to obtain at least 2 credits from physical education during their studies.
