We give learning sense.
At the School of Business Administration, cutting-edge research meets with family atmosphere of a regional public university. Our campuses are in the region, but our ideas are not limited by the place. With nearly 3,000 students, we belong to rather smaller higher education institutions. Yet, the student-teacher ratio of 15:1 enables our students to develop healthy one-on-one mentoring relationships with their tutors, offering them insight and help in ways that would be impossible in a larger classroom. Within the Business Gate Academy, students get valuable practical and problem-solving skills when working on real business cases. At the Silesian University, we inspire your growth and develop your natural creativity. Your successful future is our driving force!
The Silesian University in Opava (SU), established in 1991, has three faculties and two university institutes:
- the Faculty of Philosophy and Science in Opava
- the School of Business Administration in Karviná

The Silesian University is a legitimate member of the European University Association and a holder of a prestigious HR Excellence in Research Award. In 2022, the SU ranked 231-240 in QS EECA University Rankings. All offered study programs are fully accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.
We are open to the World.
Would you like to study, work or carry out your research abroad? Internationalization being one of the core stones of our mission, the SU SBA cooperates with more than 60 universities mainly in Europe but also in the United States, Japan, Taiwan or China providing ample opportunities for its students and staff, whether it is via Erasmus+, Horizon 2020 or a number of other exchange programs and individual scholarships. In 2023, the STARS EU alliance of which SU is a proud member was awarded the prestigious European University status by the European Commission.
Can Science be Fun?
The young people studying at our university with interest, vigor and eagerness to unravel mysteries and discover new things give an affirmative answer to the question. Students of postgraduate master programs as well as doctoral programs can participate in research activities and apply for a year-long scholarship in the Student Grant Competition.
