Mgr. Václav Brož, Ph.D.

Principal Lecturer
School of Business

Mgr. Václav Brož, Ph.D. joined the School of Business as a Principal Lecturer in early 2022. He teaches finance-oriented subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He also participates in CRIS (the Centre for Research and Interdisciplinary Studies) activities at PCU.

Václav has a PhD in Economics from the Institute of Economic Studies in the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University in Prague. In his 8 years there, he gained diverse  knowledge ranging from economic theories and econometric modelling to finance. Václav also enjoyed an exchange semester at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam.

As a teaching assistant in the PhD programme at Charles University, Václav taught Intermediate Macroeconomics and Financial Markets. This combination was due to the fact that during his Master's studies, Václav had started work in the Financial Stability Department of the Czech National Bank, first as a researcher and later on as an analyst. The synergies between Charles University and the Czech National Bank were instrumental in his dissertation thesis which explored the diverse objectives of some of the contemporary central banks, ranging from price stability to financial stability and supervision of financial institutions. For most of his time at the Czech National Bank, Václav worked on projects connected to the resilience of the banking sector and participated in communications between the local banking industry and EU regulatory bodies.

Influenced by his teaching experience which was mostly finance-oriented, as well by his practical policy experience, Václav’s research has veered more and more into the finance domain. He has successfully published (twice) in the Journal of International Money and Finance while completing a grant from Charles University. In a similar vein, Václav has presented at several international conferences as well as expert seminars for policymakers. Currently, Václav is mainly interested in studying international financial markets using applied econometrics techniques. He has also made inroads into the sustainable/green finance field and aims to utilize his experience with global finance along with the COVID crisis, and a general interest in history to explore the history of economic thought.
