Program Description

Master in Public Finance and Economics

Masaryk University Faculty of Economics and Administration

The Public Finance and Economics study programme is not only for people interested in working in public administration (at municipal and regional authorities, ministries, and institutions of these offices in operation), but for anyone who wants to understand the relationships between the public and private sectors, whether they later find employment in the private, public, or non-governmental non-profit sector. Students are encouraged to employ critical thinking during their study and strengthen their capacity for analysis and reasoning. They gain a deep knowledge of the system of public finance and on the effective management of public funds, both on the part of public revenues (tax system, the administration of taxes and fees), and on the side of public expenditures in various spheres. An integral part of the field is the issue of public policies, especially the evaluation of their redistributive impacts and their impact on the efficiency of the public and private sector.

After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

  • explain basic theoretical and methodological knowledge from general economic theory
  • know the main theoretical concepts and understand the contents of contemporary texts in one of these areas: public economics, public policies, or public finances
  • apply theoretical knowledge to solve specific models of case studies
  • appropriately interpret and comment on current developments in an area of public policy in the European context, including proposed solutions
  • analyse statistical data from the public sector and know how to use them appropriately in discussions
  • to evaluate the impacts of implemented public policies on the public and private sector entities and to propose adjustments for a more efficient allocation of public finances
  • orientation in sources of academic literature, ability to compare, analyze and synthesize when working with academic text, a creation of own larger academic text
