UNYP degree prepares you for current market needs

Now that graduation is over, many university graduates face the daunting task of entering the workforce full-time. While reports show that many industries, including Business and Computer Science, are expecting to hire graduates this year, they also say that many graduates are not prepared for those vacant job positions. Luckily, University of New York in Prague helps prepare students for their careers with excellent Bachelor's and Master's programs in Business Administration, Finance, Marketing, Managment, Entrepreneuriship and more.

According to the USA’s National Association of Colleges and Employers and the National Center for Education Statistics, 81.3 percent of employers are looking to hire graduates who studied Business Administration and Finance fields, like accounting. However, of all the majors US students chose, only 19.2 percent of them are in those fields of study.

After studying a survey of approximately 400 employers and 400 college students conducted by recruiting-software company iCIMS Inc., The Wall Street Journal wrote that “employers reported that one-third of all applications for entry-level roles come from unqualified candidates.” What’s alarming is that the article, published earlier this year, also noted that employers have been increasing the amount of their college hires in the past decade.

The good news is that Business students in the Czech Republic have an advantage. Students in countries like the United States have a huge benefit since their nation is facing a shortage of skilled labor. Similarly, undergraduates and postgraduates from Eastern Bloc countries also have more to gain by earning a degree in one of these fields since the historic shortage of graduates in this region has led to scarcity in the labor market, according to 1843 Magazine, a culture and lifestyle publication from The Economist. The article also reports that one in seven 55-year-olds in Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic have a degree. What’s more is that Czech graduates will be able to pocket twice as much earnings as students in countries like Norway thanks to lower taxes.

Earning a Business or Computer Science-related degree like IT Management at colleges like University of New York in Prague will not only help local Czech students, but also international students looking to work in a higher salary position in either the Eastern European market or the USA. It’s safe to assume that this trend will only increase in the coming years.
