Ladislav Čapek and Jan Zvoník founded their start-up Geosense during their MBA studies at the University of New York in Prague. If they had decided not to study MBA at UNYP, they would probably never have met and or started their business. Here is the story of successful UNYP graduates.

Jan Zvoník says: “Ladislav Čapek and I started our MBA at UNYP in 2008. I think that UNYP offers the best value for money out of all MBA schools in the Czech Republic. I was very satisfied with the level of courses on the program. We met interesting people, both students and teachers, which was one of my most important personal reasons for starting to study MBA. It was about meeting people. We, the two founders of our company, met on the UNYP MBA course, and after a couple of months we found out that we had a similar view of business and that we both wanted to start something new. And this, I think, is the approach UNYP encourages in its students. I see the MBA as a step to change the course of one´s career. Ladislav had an idea in his mind to start an IT company in the field of geoinformation. I liked the idea (because I love maps) and in 2009 we started to take this seriously. We both quit our jobs in multinational companies and we founded a company called Geosense s.r.o. We became established as one of the leaders of the market, we are number one in users (almost 2000 municipalities are using our solutions out of total of 6400 in the Czech Republic), and we are one of the most in-demand employers in our field.”

The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) is the leading private university institute in the Czech Republic offering studies in English language.
