Information about faculty:
The Faculty of Economics was established in 1992 within the process of transformation the Technical University to a “full-fledged” university covering also non-technical disciplines, but mainly as a response to transformation of the Slovak economy to a market driven one, which led to the growth of the whole financial sector and to an increased demand for new types of financial services. This process significantly increased the demand for experts in the fields of finance, investments, and banking. The Faculty is following recent trends in development towards Knowledge Economy and Information Society, focusing also on application of electronic services in economy and society. Issues of regional development are as well in the centre of interest of the Faculty staff members.
Mission of the Faculty: To develop knowledge and provide high-quality, professional education in the field of economic sciences. To contribute to the development of society and shaping of the regional economy through the provision of research and consultancy activity, continuing education and services for the local and regional communities.
Our Vision: The Faculty of Economics strives to be a sought-after faculty providing education in the spirit of democracy and humanism, leading students to tolerance and the capacity of critical and creative thinking, establishing conditions for free-ranging scientific research and dissemination of original and mediated knowledge, as well as systematically involving itself in international cooperation, so that it can take its rightful place among the highest-quality faculties of economics in the unified Europe. In order to fulfil this mission, the Faculty fosters the spirit of democracy, tolerance and humanism, and supports critical and creative thinking among students. Innovation, quality, accountability, critical thinking and freedom of speech are the values, which are shared by the Faculty staff.

Project title: IT Education as an activating factor of adults from areas under danger of unemployment
General information about the project
The project concerns adults who are looking for a job because they are unemployed or would like to change their present occupation but due to various reasons, especially connected with their environment, face difficulties in finding a job. The project program is aimed at people living in various weakly urbanized environments: countryside and small towns. The accomplishment of the project is a multistep program. Based on statistical data, in the initial phase of a project, target regions were defined and essential contacts with local representatives were made. The courses to be accomplished in the first step of the project were determined and their programs prepared:
Two of the above courses have already been carried out in a traditional way by the institutions that prepared the programs. After translating into national languages of the project partners the courses will be carried out in all participating countries. The accomplishment of the project will be based on blended learning, i. e., will involve traditional and modern teaching methods connected with IT. Due to the peculiarity of the project the main stress will be put on distant learning. Therefore in the second stage of the project the courses will be implemented on the e-learning platform Moodle, adjusted to the requirements of the project. In the final stage of the project all courses will be available on the e-learning platform Moodle and can serve as a support to traditional courses offered e. g., by Employment Agencies or can be treated as fully independent courses. As a supplement to courses, guides to courses and leaflets will be prepared.
The project is supported by European Commission as part of the Socrates Grundtvig 2 program (LLP).
