WHAT IS MBA?

MBA is a professional degree which stands for "Master of Business Administration". MBA is mainly intended for people who want to acquire business and economic skills and advance in their careers.

ADMISSION CONDITIONS

The MBA-Data Analysis in Economics is a 100% online accelerated program designed for undergraduates (holding minimum of Bachelor degree), or working professionals who have the passion, ambition and determination to succeed in the business world.

As a result of changes in the labour market, ways of learning are becoming more flexible, and many realize that learning is important throughout life. People with low formal qualifications are under more pressure on the labour market.
Therefore, a "second chance" for adults is needed, which builds on previous experience and acquired competencies. It is extremely difficult to attend a regular onsite university programme at an adult age. We all know that if you have a family and go to work, your time is much more limited than when you were young.

In Slovakia, we want to join the community of countries which recognize practical experience or informally acquired competencies. This, we agree, is a central element of the lifelong learning strategy in developed countries. Motivated and optimistic people with lots of skills and ambition to acquire new ones are the best guarantor of the country's prosperity and growth.
Therefore, we at AEIA also decided to offer our applicants the Recognition of prior experience (RPE), which means the only condition for admission is work experience.

Applicants must submit a proof of their previous work experience in the field of business, economics, finance and related fields for at least three years. To proof your previous experience, you can use the statement downloadable here. The admission to the programme is not subject to any entrance exams. No fees for submitting the application apply.
