End of academic year 2019/2020 at the Faculty of Economics of TUL
Students can choose between two deadlines for submission of the final thesis, 11 May or 31 July 2020. If a student is unable to complete the thesis by 11 May 2020 for reasons related to Covid19 and the emergency state, the student will just inform his/her supervisor of the choice of the second term (31 July), there is no need to apply formally.
Student has to submit both, an electronic and printed versions of the thesis. The electronic version has to be uploaded in Stag by the selected deadline. Printed version can be submitted with one week delay. The publishing center (Ediční středisko) is open and students can order the covers of diploma thesis by phone (+420 485 352 233) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do not forget to print out an upload confirmation sheet from Stag. A timestamp is generated automatically on the upload confirmation, which serves as verification when the file with final thesis was uploaded to the system.

Dean's answers to frequently asked questions
The Dean of the Faculty of Economics comes up with answers to the most frequently asked questions of students and employees of our faculty.
How about the semester?
We know you have a lot of questions about the semester. Here you can find ANSWERS to the most common of them. If you have any additional questions, write us a message or comment on Facebook or Instagram, or simply send an email. The Dean will go through it and he will publish the answers here.
When will be the exams? (+ - term, period)
FE considers the following alternatives:
1. Start of classes in mid-May - no change in schedule.
2. Beginning of classes in June - there will be 2 weeks of intensive teaching (covering the most difficult topics) which will be followed by an examination period extended until mid-July.
3. Full-time lessons will not start in June - the whole exam period will be in the form of distance (online) testing.
What about the state exams? (Is there planned a shift to a later date or not?)
If the state crisis commission of the Czech Republic allows students to be present at the school, the state examinations will take place either in the planned term or in July. If the crisis commission does not allow students to participate in the state exams, we also consider online version of the state exams. We are waiting for the amendment of the Higher Education Act in Parliament. The technical solution of online state exam must be also found. We are also considering arranging the final examinations in the last week of August or the first week of September. At the moment, there is nothing else to do but be patient and hope that by mid-May at the latest, the situation will be clearer.
What about the Final Thesis? (Will the deadline be postponed? In which form should the students submit their thesis – printed or just submit electronically?)
The existing deadlines for submission of final theses still stand in force. If the student informs the supervisor that he / she is not able to finish the work due to the crisis situation (typically due to the inability to consult in a company) within the planned deadline, we will allow him / her to submit the thesis by 31 July 2020, and defend the thesis in the August / September term.
Primarily, the student has to submit the thesis electronically through IS STAG. If it is not possible for a student to get the thesis printed and bounded according to the direction, the printed form will not be demanded.
How will it be with the compulsory summer internships, especially for those who are supposed to have the internship in tourism? – IS NOT RELEVANT FOR MASTER’S DEGREE STUDENTS and ERASMUS STUDENTS
The internships are planned for the 5th semester of bachelor studies, so there is still some time to make a final decision. However, if the internship cannot be realized, we plan as an alternative solution a seminar paper.
What are the options for State Exam in Economics in summer semester?
The state exam in economics are expected to be in regular terms, either in regular (presence) form or online (distance). The same options as for the degree state exams are under consideration.
How should a student prove the inability to submit the final thesis in due time? Is any confirmation from the company required?
The faculty will not require any confirmation. We believe that students will not abuse the situation.
Can be the closed library considered as a sufficient reason for later submission of the final thesis and the state exam in the defined later term?
There should be no problem with accessing the library. The National Library has exceptionally released over 200,000 volumes of books online. Try the link http://kramerius-vs.nkp.cz/. More online books are offer for example by Bookport, https://www.bookport.cz/prehled/.
What about the academic calendar and the delay in deadlines for final thesis?
On the Tuesday meeting of the Deans and the Rector was agreed that a new academic calendar will be set. The revised calendar will set the longest possible extension of all deadlines on TUL. The specification will probably be in the competence of the Deans because the conditions at the faculties vary (eg students of technical faculties need laboratories to complete their diplomas). At the Faculty of Economics, there is no reason to automatically extend the regular deadline for submission of final thesis and then logically also the state exam, provided that the student is able to submit the thesis within the regular deadline. If the student is unable to submit the thesis within the original deadline for the reasons stated above, we will certainly not penalize him and allow him / her a later date of the state exams.
The Faculty of Economics of the Technical University of Liberec offers what companies and organisations need at the beginning of the 3rd millennium: top-quality education, research, knowledge, experience, and cooperation. During its existence, the faculty has been transformed into a prestigious, respected institution providing a complete education, i.e. bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees, in these programmes of study: Economics and Management, System Engineering and Informatics, and Economic Policy and Administration.
The Faculty of Economics was established with effect from May 1, 1992, as the fourth faculty of the Technical College of Mechanical and Textile Engineering (today Technical University of Liberec), and it began its activities in the academic year 1992-1993.
Indispensable to the scope of the Faculty of Economics are its research activities. Influential results are regularly presented at the international conferences "Liberec Economic Forum" and "Liberec Informatics Forum", organised by the Faculty in two-year cycles. The Faculty of Economics is the headquarters of the North Bohemian regional section of the Czech Society for System Integration; it works closely with the Chamber of Commerce, the Czech Marketing Association, the Association of Accountants, as well as with leading industrial companies, banks, insurance companies, and other major institutions from economic and public life.
The Faculty of Economics of TUL initiated the establishment of and is now the editors’ headquarters for the prestigious scientific journal E+M Economics and Management, which is listed, among others, in the databases along with Journal Citation Reports and Scopus. Since 2010, the journal E+M Economics and Management has been allocated the impact factor.
