About this program

Bachelors in Mineral Economics

We all encounter raw materials on a daily basis because everything around us is made up of raw materials. Look, for example, at the mobile phone you keep in your hand, the T-shirt you wear, or the house you live in.That is why most trade in the world takes place with raw materials. We will teach you how to make money from raw materials, how to predict price developments not only for oil and electricity, but also for BTC. Thanks to information about mineral deposits, trading with raw materials, processing raw materials and their use in industry, you will find better employment on the labor market.

As a graduate of the Mineral Economics study program, you will be employed in the positions of managers and commodity traders in industrial enterprises and in the financial sector. You can become an official in the state administration and local government, or thanks to the acquired knowledge and skills, you can go into business.

We move with the times, so during your studies you will get to know modern SW, augmented and virtual reality. You will be able to use the newly built laboratories. You can travel to partner universities abroad. We strengthen the team throughout the year at a number of events where you can meet students and teachers in an informal environment and atmosphere.
