> MVSO Seen Through the Eyes of Students and Graduates
During our existence, we have produced more than 1,250 graduates who are very successful in the market economy environment. Annually, the employability of graduates on the labour market or their success in their continuation of their higher education reaches more than 90%, namely 97.1% in 2015 and 97.4% in 2016.
To maintain the stable or increasing trend of the employability of our graduates, in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce of the Olomouc region and our corporate partners, some of whom are represented in the Academic Board of our college, we regularly innovate our curricula and study content in order to reflect the current needs of small and medium-sized enterprises, organisations, and institutions in the region. Our graduates are very successful. They do business, lead family enterprises, are active in the field of public administration or work for Czech or multinational enterprises, e.g. Glycona (glycerine manufacturer), Stavebniny u komína (Building Materials „At the Chimney“), Ataccama Software(smart, collaborative data curation platform for digital transformation), Sigma Group (manufacturer of water pumps), TESCO SW (Tesařík software company), Honeywell (aerospace corporation), Raiffeisenbank, OBI (hobby market – gardening and do-it-yourself supplies), and many others.
A survey, done in the year 2017 among our graduates, revealed that our graduates consider MVSO to be an entrepreneurial college with a personal and fair approach to students. As the key strengths of the college, they have all identified the friendly atmosphere, modern facilities, expert instructors, and an individual and friendly approach to solving problems.
More than 82% of the graduates consider the knowledge, skills and experience gained at MVSO usable in practice. They appreciate a strong emphasis on teaching in the area of specific management and IT skills, including training in communication and presentation skills.
Zdeněk Sitař, a graduate of the class of 2014, Director of Quality for Europe, Norgren IMI International (a provider of pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies):
„After three years of studies, we created an incredibly united and close team which absorbed and changed each of us. This team and, especially, the transformations of its individual members, are probably the greatest reward and benefit for us. The loners became great team members, the introverts became friends who have been looking forward to each further event and meeting and who have been actively participating in them. The „nerds“ became friends offering help and support.“
Petra Kamarádová, a graduate of the class of 2014:
„At MVSO, I do appreciate the individual approach, teaching focused on practice, the implementing of projects, a large offer of studies abroad, and broad opportunities for self-realization. I have discovered that it is not necessary to learn theory by heart. On the contrary, we can acquire skills and knowledge in a much more interesting way.“
