The paper analyzes role “Enterprise Architect” in Czech companies in the context of current requirements of economic entities. Enterprise Architect is a specific role, which must supervise both the architecture of the whole corporate system and the design of its parts and methodologies in the ICT area and the compliance with it. People in the role “Enterprise Architect” must possess a wide spectrum of practical and theoretical knowledge and skills, which we identify in this article according to selected literature and the survey we have carried out. The article includes a presentation of our research methodology, including the solution for measuring the knowledge in the different knowledge domains, selection of the statistical sample for selection investigation among the companies and defining the method for evaluation of the obtained data. In the end, the identified requirements for this role are formulated as well as their dependence on the monitored aspects and impacts of these requirements on the options for educating this type of experts in universities.
