Cooperation with Educational Institutions

Cooperation with educational institutions is one of the cornerstones of our human resource mission. We put a great emphasis on your education and believe that mutual cooperation is of a great benefit for both parties.

Since 2012, Meopta has participated in the project “Talented Students” in cooperation with Fakulta Mangementu a Ekonomiky UTB Zlín. Our goal is to enable the talented students to get more information and be able to use their theoretical knowledge acquired during their studies. The requirements for successful candidates are not only good academic results but also their willing engagement. The successful candidates receive an assignment where they can test their knowledge and experience while getting familiar with internal Meopta processes and the whole company overview.

“I took part in the Talented Students program in 2014 while I was in my 4th year
of study at Bata University in Zlín. Meopta came to my attention especially thanks 
to the specific portfolio, history and their representatives during the meeting.”
