Overview

Students in the Public Finance and Economics study programme at Masaryk University  are encouraged to employ critical thinking during their study and strengthen their capacity for analysis and reasoning. They gain a deep knowledge of the system of public finance and on the effective management of public funds, both on the part of public revenues (tax system, the administration of taxes and fees), and on the side of public expenditures in various spheres. An integral part of the field is the issue of public policies, especially the evaluation of their redistributive impacts and their impact on the efficiency of the public and private sector.

Career opportunities

Graduates assume management positions in regional and municipal administrative bodies, government agencies, municipal companies, and European institutions. Many pursue careers in the private sector as well as non-profit management, where they work as directors, fundraisers, PR and communications experts, project managers, and economists.

Graduates will be able to work in fields such as employment and social security, health service, social services, education, culture, physical culture, and sports. They will be able to work as skilled economists in the spheres of housing and technical infrastructure, and in the field of public administration. They will be able to find work in the field of tax and duty administration.

Students of this program are mainly trained for the performance of economic and administrative professions in the public and non-governmental, non-profit sector. The development of critical thinking and the ability to evaluate public policies from an international perspective also creates prerequisites for employment in public sector research organizations or agencies influencing the public policies.
