ASSESSING STUDENTS’ LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE IN PROFILE COURSES OF CHOSEN ECONOMIC STUDY PROGRAMMES AT THE FEM CULS
Keywords:Educational attainment of the population, forms of study, higher education, students’ knowledge, study programmes, study results, success rate, universities
To increase the educational attainment of the population is a priority that has arisen also from the pro-growth strategy of the European Union. In this regard, the quality of the teaching process in tertiary education and subsequent graduates’ employability are paid substantial attention. However, the quality of knowledge and skills acquired and presented by the graduates on the labour market has not been observed so closely. The focus on quantitative aspects implies a significant risk of lowering qualitative standards. The present paper strives to analyze the development and structure of students’ results within the framework of economic study programmes at the Faculty of Economics and Management CULS Prague in five consecutive academic years. Based on the analysis, the differences in study results, study skills and approaches are specified and compared between and among the individual study programmes and forms of study.
