It is achieved through both internal and external evaluation processes, serving as a source of ideas for improvements. Our students are regularly asked to report on the quality and effectiveness of each of the study subjects. The results are discussed by the academic and the scientific councils of VSEM and they are accessible to public.
A way to achieve our goals is the attention we pay to our instructors’ qualifications. The teachers are recruited on the basis of our rich experience. All the instructors’ work is regularly assessed.
VSEM systematically cooperates with many external experts and students’ employers. The school is a member of many organizations associating specialists from the area of economics and management. The projects of VSEM are open to public. All these features contribute to transparency and the practical orientation of the school.
The system of VŠEM self-evaluation is based on:
- quality of instruction
- technical and organizational conditions
- research, international relations and public relations
