Mgr. Václav Brož, Ph.D.

Principal Lecturer
School of Business

Václav Brož is a Principal Lecturer and Research Lead with the School of Business. He teaches modules ranging from macroeconomics and financial markets to statistics, corporate governance and employee management. In his lessons, Václav likes to link theories to practice, with an emphasis on the current events and trends. He believes that if students can relate to real-world developments such as economic and financial crises, they might have an advantage in their future careers. He also tries to include students as much as possible in terms of crafting each lesson.

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 financial markets, namely the impact of new information on the evolution of financial securities.
