Collegium Civitas is a modern school which follows the newest trends in management education. While working on the program a team of experts and practitioners studied the achievements of the leading business schools in the area of management education, as well as the expectations of employers towards fresh graduates of management studies in order to create a unique studies program which will provide Collegium Civitas graduates with skills required by future employers. We put a strong emphasis on teaching our students business principles and processes so that our graduates understand the specifics of all firm activities, thanks to which future managers from Collegium Civitas will posses a good understanding of all department employees needs which will result in a smooth cooperation with them. Collegium Civitas staff’s expertise and achievements allowed us to craft program in wchich teaching soft skills, such as: communications, group work, negotiations, multicultural management, change management etc. plays a major role. A majority of our courses are offered as workshops which allow students to acquire practical skills as well as to develop a very important skill for all managers – the skill of teamwork. The last semestr of the program provides work experience as the students work on their own project in a company. This project is a base for Bachelor’s dissertation.
Management (or managing) is the administration of an organization, whether it is a business, a not-for-profit organization, or government body. Management includes the activities of setting the strategy of an organization and coordinating the efforts of its employees (or of volunteers) to accomplish its objectives through the application of available resources, such as financial, natural, technological, and human resources. The term "management" may also refer to those people who manage an organization.
The brutality of a man purely motivated by monetary considerations … often does not appear to him at all as a moral delinquency, since he is aware only of a rigorously logical behavior, which draws the objective consequences of the situation.
Georg Simmel, “Domination,” On Individuality and Social Forms (1971), p. 110
The worker is not the problem. The problem is at the top! Management!

Management as an activity has always existed to make people’s desires through organized effort. Management facilitates the efforts of people in organized groups and arises when people seek to cooperate to achieve goals.
