Duration of university studies in the Czech Republic and the effect of fees for excessive study duration
Fliegl, Tomáš ; Veselý, Arnošt (advisor) ; Vlk, Aleš (referee)
Topic of the thesis is the duration of studies at universities in the Czech Republic and the effect of fees for excessive study duration on the duration of studies. It focuses on undergraduate programs at public universities, for which the fees are applicable. Author exploits data from the national student register and data on the amount of fees from most Czech universities to build a regression model. Awareness of students on the fees policy was determined by questionnaire for participants of a widely used admission test (National Comparative Test Scio). It has been found, that at the average, 41% of students extended nominal length of study program before completing it, with highest share observed in humanities. About 10% of students extended the nominal length of study by more than one year. Fees apply to one-fifth of the students, half of them because their unsuccessful studies had been attributed to their actual length of study. The results show that time to degree is only insignificantly related to the potential amount of the fee; only in the case of students of one public university we have found mild relationship and CZK 1,000 fee increase should shorten time to degree by 6 days. Influence on the length of unsuccessful studies is more pronounced and represents 10 to 90 days per CZK 1,000. Low effect...
Dropout in higher education from perspective of public universities
Richterová, Kateřina ; Vlk, Aleš (advisor) ; Fliegl, Tomáš (referee)
This master thesis deals with the dropout in higher education at public universities in the Czech Republic. Main goal was to gain a perspective, how public universities look at the rising dropout, on which bases the attitudes of universities differ, how great attention the universities pay to dropout in their annual reports and long-term goals and which impact it has with respect to national and international policies. Answers to research questions were obtained firstly by analyzing of the secondary data (literature, research, public policy documents, annual reports and long-term goals of public universities) and secondly by analyzing of the primary data (expert semi-structured interviews with representatives of public universities, seminars on the dropout in higher education, internship at the Ministry of education, youth and sports). The outcome of the data analysis shows that dropout is a significant problem for the most of public universities because it has a growing trend year by year. Most of them see the dropout through the pragmatic perspective due to financing of public universities. Many others external and internal factors have impact on behavior and attitude towards to the dropout in higher education, yet pragmatic perspective seems to be essential.

The Effects of Education on Economic Growth in the Russian Federation
Samuseva, Kseniya ; Svoboda, Karel (advisor) ; Vlk, Aleš (referee)
Thesis discusses the theory of human capital and the strong interdependence between economic growth and human investments. The essence of human capital concept lies in the fact that investments in education and healthcare create the human capital in the same way as expenses on the equipment and materials create physical capital. The rate of return of human investments, in the long run, is much higher than of investments into physical capital. The theory of human capital is applied in the comparative analysis of Federal Subjects of the Russian Federation with the purpose to determine interrelation between the level of education and economic development of the country with the focus on the level of education, differences in income level and vocational and professional structure of the labor.

Buršíková, Hana ; Potůček, Martin (advisor) ; Vlk, Aleš (referee)
My diploma thesis was focused on evaluation of degree of success of project "Education of Humanities at BUT" within a scope of Operational Programme Human Resources Development 2004 - 2006 implementation. I presupposed from formulation of the paradigms using theoretical concepts of public policy, education and management to practical analyses Project phases. I put the cardinal emphasis on the implementation phase, which I remeted to research. I evaluated the Project implementation as extraordinary successful on the base of outputs of expert interwiews, focus group and questionnaire within a scope of the research. I tried to compare this Project with another one, similar project settled in any other Member Strate of the European Union. I reached that similar projects in other Member States have not been realized, the only comparable one was Portugese Project in the programming period 1994 - 1999 focused on increasing competitivness of students of high schools. This finding led to conclusion that the Project realized at BUT was unique and its successful realization could be considered as a leading case in the area of Structural Funds of the European Union in the Czech Republic.
