The education and development of managers is a key component of corporate education policy because managers have a significant influence on overall company performance. The aim of the research set out in this paper was to determine, on the basis of a sample set of 607 companies from the Czech Republic and a sample set of 145 companies from Ukraine, to what extent the education of managers takes place in companies. The companies were divided into four categories according to their size (in terms of number of employees). The assumption was made that the education of managers is most widespread in economically more developed countries where companies have greater financial resources at their disposal and are more willing to invest in the education of their employees, and therefore managers. The hypothesis was therefore put forward that the education of managers is more widespread in the Czech Republic than in Ukraine and that the organization thereof in both countries is directly related to company size (i.e. the larger the company, the more widespread the education of managers). The hypotheses were confirmed.
Key words: education / development / manager / Czech Republic / Ukraine
