Higher education has to adapt to the market principles in postsocialistic countries after the year 1989. The training of graduates should constantly reflect on the business environment, where the graduates are coming after university study. A lot of them do not want to obtain only detailed knowledge from technical subjects as electrotechnics, chemistry, informatics, etc., but they require training (lectures, exercises, workshops) in the field of economics, management of small and medium enterprises, marketing, and finances. The study combination of an entrepreneurial focus on the technical / technological universities brings high-qualified high-engaged and flexible young people for immediately changing market. The real experience and results with this type of the study in the Slovak university of technology Bratislava – Institute of management are discussed in the conclusion of the paper.
Key words: technical education / economical education / higher education / entrepreneurial focus
