General information on the admission exam

Admission procedure - the method of implementation is the same for each of the bachelor study programmes at the Faculty of Management, Economics and Business PU in Prešov (in Slovak language):

Method of implementation of the admission procedure for bachelor studies:

Applicants for Bachelor's studies will be admitted in the admission procedure without conducting an entrance examination.

Student applicants may take the REQUIRED SCIO test if they wish to do so (more at www.scio.cz).

Automatic and preferential admission will be granted to all those applicants for studies of the 1st degree (Bachelor's) who achieve a percentile of more than 50 (inclusive) on the optional SCIO test "General study prerequisites" (or Municipal study prerequisites) - this is an admission irrespective of the average of marks in the final examination, subject to the condition of submitting their valid school-leaving certificate. These applicants will be admitted without evaluation by the algorithm, but their enrolment will be subject to the presentation of their matriculation certificate.

All those applicants for studies of the 1st degree (Bachelor) who are ranked in order of the best result up to the specified number of applicants according to the capacity of the faculty will be admitted.

The ranking of candidates for admission to the Bachelor's degree programme shall be made solely on the basis of the recognition of secondary school results with the possibility of bonuses. The ranking is generated by an algorithm published on the Faculty's website https://www.unipo.sk/fakulta-manazmentu. In the first step of the algorithm, the ranking is based on the arithmetic averages of the grades from the high school diploma, taking into account the type of high school.

For admission to undergraduate studies, the results of the matriculation examinations of all types, from all types of schools will be considered in the following categories:

  • Gymnasium graduates,
  • graduates of another vocational secondary school.

All applicants, i.e. also those applicants who have not graduated from the profile subjects (mathematics and foreign language), will be included in the admission orderfor the relevant positions. Applicants must submit, within the prescribed time limit, a matriculation certificate certifying that they have passed a valid matriculation examination; in the case of a foreign applicant, nostrification (recognition of the equivalence of educational qualifications issued by foreign schools).

The following factors will weigh most heavily in the ranking of the best applicants for admission to first cycle (Bachelor's) studies:

  1. The product of the arithmetic average of the matriculation examination marks and the coefficient for the type of secondary school attended (compulsory part)
  2. System of bonuses by which the relevant coefficient is reduced (optional part):

a) bonus for the SCIO test "General study prerequisites" (or General study prerequisites), more details in the document Algorithm of ranking for Bachelor studies,

b) grades on the school leaving certificate in the profiling subjects, namely mathematics and foreign languages (English, German, French, French, Russian, Spanish), which will be systematically taken into account by the bonus,

c) bonus for placement in the Economic Olympiad.

In the event of equality between two or more candidates in the order for admission on the basis of the evaluations applied so far, the better results of the final year report card for the last year, which will be requested additionally by the Faculty of Management, will decide the order.

For all three bachelor's degree programmes, 6 separate different rankings for the admission of the best candidates will be created in this way:

- separate ranking for applicants for full-time study in Slovak language for the study programme Management,

- separate ranking for applicants for external study in Slovak language for the study programme Management,

- separate ranking for applicants for full-time study in Slovak language for the study programme Business Management and Marketing,

-separate ranking for applicants for external study in Slovak language for the study programme Business Management and Marketing,

- separate ranking for applicants for full-time study in the Slovak language for the study programme Tourism, Hotel Management and Spa Management,

- separate ranking for applicants for external study in Slovak language for the study programme Tourism, Hotel Management and Spa Management.

All applicants are advised to keep a permanent eye on the faculty's website (https://www.unipo.sk/fakulta-manazmentu), where all approved clarifications for the academic year 2022/2023 will be published from time to time.

As part of their management studies, students primarily take courses that create a graduate profile - specific curricula are available for review on the faculty website (https://www.unipo.sk/fakulta-manazmentu) under Education/Accredited Programs of Study (https://www.unipo.sk/fakulta-manazmentu/vzdelavanie/akreditovanesp/).
