Abstract

We analyze the changes in Czech economic higher education after February 1948, focusing on the policy of the Communist Party, the role of individual politicians and the process of a multiple reorganization of universities which were dedicated to educate future economists. The study deals with specific circumstances in which the University of Economics, Prague was founded. The findings are based primarily on non-released documents from the records office of the University of Economics in Prague, Archives of the Czech Technical University in Prague, interviews with eyewitnesses and released sources of personal provenience. We came to the conclusion that the University of Economics in Prague emerged from a massive reform of the economic education system which had been commenced by the Communist Party after 1948. The new university was a result of a political decision and squaring with the so called Slánism of the University of Political and Economic Sciences. It also was a content and personnel continuation of the earlier University of Economic Sciences CTU. The guarantors of this reorganization were Felix Oliva and Vladimir Sedlák, the first chancellor of the University of Economics, Prague.
