Patronage classes

College of Public Economy and Administration academic workshops at partner schools 

Our College invites interested schools to take advantage of our open program for secondary schools, run by our best teachers.

Being aware of how full modern teaching programs are, we do not organize information meetings. We fit into the existing curriculum (e.g. Basic Entrepreneurship or Social Studies classes) by conducting modern academic classes in one or more lessons.

Thanks to the diversity of scientific interests of our employees, the topics of lectures and workshops cover issues in the fields of: economics, philosophy, spatial management, law, sociology and management.

We are interested in the most current socio-economic issues, so we can offer students a discussion on, for example, the need to limit civil liberties in the face of terrorist threats, or the role of the state in solving the problem of unprofitable mines, or the repayment of loans taken out in Swiss francs, or the Krakow authorities’ proposal to introduce paid parking throughout the city. Our lecturers often comment on current events in the media and would be willing to moderate students’ discussions on selected topics.

Cooperation between our University and the Secondary School of Josephine Gebert at the “Radosna Nowina 2000” Educational Center in Piekary near Krakow was officially launched on Friday, March 18, 2022.

The ceremonial signing of the patronage agreement took place within the walls of the University of Economics in Krakow and was performed by: Rector of the University of Economics in Krakow, dr hab. Stanisław Mazur, prof. UEK and the School Director, Fr. Zygmunt Robert Berdychowski CM, MA. The hosts were also represented by the Dean of the College of Economy and Public Administration, dr Hab.

The patronage covers a class with an economic and tourism profile at the Secondary School in Piekary, implementing an extended mathematics, geography and English program. According to the signed agreement, from the 2022/2023 school year, a special educational program will be launched for a four-year education cycle, including 10 teaching hours per school year.

Classes supporting teaching conducted by employees of the Institute of Political Science, Sociology and Philosophy will concern issues of the broadly understood political and socio-economic order of the world.

The patronage agreement provides for the organization of classes both at the secondary school and at the University of Economics in Krakow, including student participation in the activities of the Political Science Club “Homo Politicus” operating at the Department of Political Science.

Participation in academic classes at KUE is intended to help develop the area of knowledge that is interesting to high school students, as well as to familiarize them with the nature of classes at an economic university.

The culmination of the involvement of students from the Piekary secondary school in the cooperation with our University will be the receipt of certificates of participation in the program.
