Thanks to the appropriate combination of economic, managerial and technical subjects, the student (graduate) is able to quickly and efficiently search for simple and complex, ordinary and extraordinary solutions for corporate issues, such as:

  • Is our company is in good condition?
  • What technical solution is more economical?
  • What are our customers needs, how can we meet them?
  • Would it be efficient to buy a new production line?
