Most people think that accounting is a boring job that deals with laws, circulars, and numbers and has as a permanent accessory a computer with which one is constantly doing calculations. Obviously, everything related to the operation of companies is based on laws, and everything related to financial data includes arithmetic operations, but accounting is not just that. Finance is a much broader science than accounting. The financial specialist is the one who will secure funds, evaluate investment decisions, manage the portfolio, relations with banks, insurance companies, and the stock market if the company is listed, will face the risks, and predict the direction of the market in terms of interest rates, the fundraising framework, the economic model of the country. The financial sector is one of the three main pillars of running a business (the other two are production and marketing), and the way it works can make the difference between success and failure for a business. There are many examples of companies that, although they had a very good product and successful marketing, failed in international markets because of a lack of financial expertise. In a complex international environment in which funds can be transferred from one end of the world to the other at the touch of a button, the financial expert proves to be a valuable partner of any business and the person who can lead it to international markets successfully. In fact, if we take into account that each company has its own characteristics and moves in a different financial ecosystem, it is clear how important it is for an executive to have learned and know in depth the financial personality of companies with different organizations and function: industrial, commercial, primary production, services, banks, stock exchanges, insurance funds, public organizations, etc.

The bachelor’s programme in American Studies is an interdisciplinary programme that examines the United States and its role in the world from the perspective of various academic disciplines. The aim of the programme is to convey a complex understanding of the culture and society of the United States as well as competence in dealing with transatlantic topics. The BA programme in American Studies is structured around the following three areas: 1) Literature and Culture, 2) Society, History, and Politics and 3) Language and Society. The branch Literature and Culture introduces students to US literature and culture. At Leipzig, the concept of ‘literature’ is a very broad one encompassing classic genres of prose, drama and poetry but other kinds of ‘texts’, from films and magazines to mail-order catalogues and cookbooks. The modules teach students basic knowledge about the literature and culture of the US as well as important skills in the field of literature and cultural studies. In the branch Society, History, and Politics, students explore American history, politics and society and their international contexts. The modules teach students basic knowledge about developments and topics in US society and politics in the past and present. They acquaint students with important techniques of historical studies. The branch Language and Society is offered by the Institute of British Studies and introduces students to English linguistics. The focus here is on American English. After an overview of the different branches of linguistics, students deal with the role of language in the world: how do we acquire language? How is it produced and perceived? What social functions does language fulfil? Once the students have familiarised themselves with all three areas in the basic modules, the rest of the bachelor’s programme allows them to specialise within these three areas. The courses of all modules are taught in English. Numerous modules contain practical language components in which students specifically train the forms of academic writing and speaking in English. If prospective students have any questions or would like further information about the bachelor’s programme in American Studies, they are welcome to contact the course advisers at the Institute of American Studies.

In Europe, millions of people are active in the equine sector. Think of breeding, sport, leisure or business activities at all different levels. The equine industry is rapidly expanding throughout the world, and therefore, continues to professionalise as a sector. Western European countries, like the Netherlands, Germany and the UK, have become key players in this international field. These countries are highly recognised worldwide for the breeding and trading of sport horses as well as for their high level of sport performance and equine knowledge.The increasing number of international transactions – sport horses, equine products and horse knowledge – demand internationally oriented people, who can combine their interest in horses with sound business knowledge. The sector needs individuals with the ability to analyse business performance, spot market opportunities and come up with innovations.

School leaving certificate and entrance exam.
I’ve met students who have a real passion for animals but aren’t interested in becoming veterinarians. They often choose to pursue a different academic area, because the study programs at the bachelor’s level in this area are veterinary medicine heavy.
There are a few Animal Science programs listed in our database, and I’m really interested in what I’m reading about the Animal Protection and Welfare program at the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Science. This university is in Brno, Czech Republic. If you read our blog you know that I love Brno and think it’s a great student city with a lot to offer.
The Animal Protection and Welfare program began “in order to satisfy the demand for university-educated professionals in the field of animal protection against cruelty, animal protection against stress, pain and suffering, animal protection in handling animals, in the active formation of appropriate conditions for animals and for the control of these conditions.” This covers a broad range of topics that I would not have realized until I did a deep dive into the course requirements.
The first year of the program is the science focused year. Students take courses in Animal Biology, Animal Breeding, Animal Nutrition, Animal Physiology, Animal Anatomy, and Zoology. In addition, they take classes that focus on Ethology (which is animal behavior-had to look that one up myself!) and Animal Welfare. Each year of study includes a course that teaches about lab diagnosis, with a different area of focus around this. The first year students study this as it pertains to biochemistry.
The second year concentrates on animal welfare, with courses specific to types of animals. There is a course on the welfare of dogs, one looking at the welfare of cats and other pets, another about the zoo and circus animals, one focused on abandoned animals and shelter operations, a course about welfare as it pertains to beekeeping, another about game animals, and one looking at horse welfare. These extensive, specific, and varied courses really differentiate the program from other animal science programs I have looked at. Students continue their lab diagnosis which focuses on haematology and molecular analysis. Students start learning about the legal aspects of animal welfare through the Animal Protection and Legislation class and also choose two electives from interesting options like Exotic Animal Breeding, Animal Genetics, and Radiobiology.
The final year focuses on the care of animals with courses like Animal Obstetrics and Reproduction, Basics of Vet Care, Medicine in Animal care, Infectious Diseases of Animals, and Care of Injured Animals. Students continue classes around legislation, lab diagnosis(instrumental analysis focus) and animal behavior.
The number of career options for graduates of this degree is mind-blowing! Here’s what the school says about the possibilities:
“The graduates of the Bachelor's Study Programme in this field are qualified for jobs at the Veterinary Administration Authorities in the supervision of the animal protection against cruelty (especially the control and supervision of livestock and companion animals), at the State Veterinary Institutes and laboratories analyzing biological fluids and tissues and other biological materials, at the State Administration Authorities for the protection of wildlife animals and protected animals., at the authorities that ensure the protection of endangered species under international conventions (eg. CITES) and regulations (Customs Authorities), at the institutions and enterprises engaged in animal experiments, at the Zoos, at institutions for the protection of abandoned and disabled animals (animal shelters), at state and public administration bodies using animals or coming into contact with animals in their activities (police, fire fighters), at municipal and city authorities addressing animal protection against cruelty (problems with animals in villages and towns), at organizations and business enterprises in the field of animal husbandry, animal transport, purchase and sale of animals, import and export of animals, and organizing exhibitions of animals, competitions and sports activities using animals, at organizations dealing with hippotherapy, canistherapy or other forms of animotherapy, at foundations and organizations dedicated to the protection of animals (WSPA, RSPCA), at private institutions engaged in consultancy in the field of ethology and behavioral problems of animal welfare and animal protection, at research laboratories and research institutions dealing with animal protection, animal welfare and ethology, at university education – teaching and research focused on research of wild animals, livestock or companion animals, at media communication concerning the animal welfare and protection, as well as at the international organizations dealing with animal protection (EU, etc.).”
So, on paper, this program looks really exciting to me. Unfortunately, one thing the school does not have is a really good and thorough website so a number of questions remain. There is nothing about student life on the website. I know that Brno is a great student city, but I would be interested in knowing about the university-based international student resources and activities, as well as how many international students are in the program. Admission to the program requires a 1-hour entrance exam (biology), but it is unclear whether that must be taken in Brno. If this is a program that interests you, these questions should be easy enough to get answered through a few emails. Of course, the other thing that’s fantastic about graduating from a Czech university is that graduates have free access to the Czech labor force-for life! This eliminates the largest obstacle students often have in finding a job to stay in Europe after graduating!
