Our Alumni

The Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism cultivates strong alumni relationships and wishes to promote the work of its graduates. As part of this effort, a Facebook series was launched in which our successful graduates reflect on their University studies and professions.

Lada Brůnová

Communication & Project Management, Neuron foundation

Marketing and Media Studies graduate


Many say that this school does not teach anything practical and there is too much theory and history. Professor Kraus once told me something that still resonates with me - school should lead us to interests in sociology, philosophy or psychology because after we get a job, we will be too busy to read about those subjects. If you're skilled, knowledge can be your competitive advantage.

Karin Dimitrovová

Trade Marketing Specialist

Marketing graduate


I don’t want to go back to school. It was a great experience, but still it was only "training" and I like bigger challenges. What I like in the field of Marketing Communication and PR is that everyone can find what he needs. The school carefully selects students, which is absolutely correct. If a student wants to have freedom, he gets it, but it is important to be reasonable.

David Lukšů

Sport journalist, Czech Television

Journalism and Media Studies graduate


The most important thing in my studies was dealing with different challenges. I will never forget Semiotics with Doctor Šoltys. We were discussing our final theses and he asked everyone what they liked. I said that I'm interested in sport and he answered: „Ok, write it down: Comments of the invited hockey expert in the light of transparent intentional logic“. The only thing I understood from that time was the hockey. I went to the library and tried to absorb it all somehow. I wrote and work with fear surrendered. And Doctor Šoltys wrote about my work: „Yes, this is how I imagined it.“

Jindřich Šídlo

Editor in Chief, Politics department, Hospodářské noviny

Journalism graduate


Despite the fact that today's journalism is much faster than before, I would not change anything for the good old honest journalism, which has its own rules of verifying resources and other traditional practices. Every journalist must go through a long evolution. For my career, which has lasted 24 years, I have experienced that there are steps that you simply have to make. Everything has come gradually. One should not have the impression in one’s twenties that one is completed. The time when I had worked in media for half a year and did an interview with the prime minister is gone. And that's good.

Darina Vymětalíková

Sport journalist, Czech Television

Journalism and Media Studies graduate


I think journalism is a craft. Nobody should have to rely on the fact that they start looking for a job after five years of study. It’s your responsibility. It's a lot about an individual’s approach to the study and the activity of every each student.

Robert Záruba

Sport journalist, Czech Television

Journalism graduate


School gives you some guidance and everyone must do what they find necessary especially for themselves. Some are able to take advantage of the whole study, while some are disappointed and claim that school has not taught them anything. When I studied, there were no specialized subjects about sport journalism. There was no internet, so I mainly tried to follow all the sports news. I wrote my own articles from these events. University does not teach you how to write, it teaches you how the media works and which way to go at writing on your own.
