UNYP Success Story: Martin Pavlíček
Taking the Next Step – PR Director for Havas Worldwide returns to UNYP!
Martin Pavlíček, Senior PR Director at Havas Worldwide Prague
MBA in Marketing, class 2012
"One of the biggest contributions from studying at UNYP are the contacts one gains, and the mutually beneficial relations. Not with student colleagues, but also with professors. You meet people here from many countries, you learn from each other and this immensely enriches you.”
Martin Pavlíček (35) received his first bachelor’s degree in Communication & Mass Media at the University of New York in Prague, he continued on to study his Masters in Professional & Business Communication as well at UNYP, and then crowned his education a few years later with an MBA with a focus in marketing - Where else but UNYP, of course. This year Martin is returning to the University as a lecturer in PR & Communications.
"The circle has closed. I began to teach advanced PR to third and fourth year students in the bachelor’s program. I like to give my experience back to the school,” says Martin, now Senior PR Director at Havas Worldwide Prague and prior to that the Corporate Communications Director with UPC Czech Republic. He understands very well that one of the contributions of studying at UNYP are the contacts one gains, and the 'mutually beneficial relations'. For instance, thanks to one of his classmates he got a tip for his first communication job, in ČEZ, no less. And this step influenced his career. During his master’s and MBA studies he had a chance to meet professionals with five plus years of experience in the field, people at management level, including professors. "For example, marketing was taught by a lecturer that was well connected in Silicon Valley. Such meetings enrich you tremendously," Martin admits.
From today's perspective as a lecturer, he appreciates even more the very different study system. Compared to Czech universities, where students learn from books and lectures, and evaluation is based on written and oral tests, at UNYP part of studying and evaluating includes discussions with teachers, asking questions and of course team work on task resolution. "On top of that, pupils do not learn only from teachers, but also from one another, teachers from pupils and teachers from teachers. A similar 360-degree model is used for giving feedback to both students and professors. People really prepare for life here. This is how it functions in the workplace", Martin concludes.
