The Third Mission of the Faculty (Social Responsibility)
The Faculty of Finance and Accounting of the Prague University of Economics and Business, as a faculty of public university, carries out its third role in society in the context of two primary functions (student education and research), namely in the fields of finance, accounting and economic education.

- involvement in non-profit socially beneficial activities (eg. activities to support children and youth, disadvantaged people, promotion of science and research results, short-term and long-term intersectoral mobility of academic staff in a non-academic environment, etc.)
