European Management




The graduate students acquire knowledge and skills in the field of leadership, both in civic and business spheres, with particular emphasis on the Polish and Ukrainian specificity. The studies curriculum includes practical issues in the field of: work organization in business (with the emphasis on an employee’s specificity from the Eastern Partnership countries), human resource management in Polish-Ukrainian work environments, supplemented with elements of communication and social psychology. Historical and theoretical courses serve as an introduction to workshops and practical courses. The courses are conducted by academic lecturers, including specialists in Polish-Ukrainian relations, but also by Poles and Ukrainians who have been working in Poland for years. It is worth emphasizing that the studies are a source of knowledge about the conditions, challenges, but also opportunities related to the development of a student’s career. Thus, the graduate is prepared to work (at various levels) in business, central and local government administration, and in various areas of activity of civic communities in the conditions of Polish-Ukrainian cooperation within the European Community.
These are the first postgraduate studies in Poland aimed directly at the development of management staff within the framework of bilateral cooperation.


First of all, the knowledge gained by the students during the Postgraduate Studies in European Management will allow not only for increasing the efficiency of work in an international environment, but will also bring the graduates closer to the European environment. The knowledge acquired by the students is not only an academic theoretical base, but also practice and experience passed on by people who are successful in companies operating in Poland, but also boast international background. This experience will allow the employees not only to acquire knowledge, but also to apply it in the future in their workplace. The certificate of graduation from the Polish state Pedagogical University obtained by the employee emphasizes the reliability and international reputation of the organization. It proves the high care for the quality of the offered products and services. It facilitates gaining the trust of contractors by using proven and recognizable business standards in Europe. An organization can achieve even greater benefits by assigning a group of employees to the Postgraduate Studies in European Management. After graduation, students will be prepared to work in an international environment, but they will also be ready to cooperate with partners from Central Europe – in particular from Poland. During the classes, thanks to joint problem solving and analysis of case studies, employees will raise the level of interpersonal skills, acquire knowledge and skills to perform various roles in the organization.
