The Faculty of Informatics and Statistics is one of six faculties at the University of Economics, Prague. Subjects taught in this Faculty include information technologies, information management, knowledge systems, and quantitative methods (statistics, econometrics, operational research and demography). These are dynamically developing fields propelled by the intense development of computer technology.

The Faculty of Informatics and Statistics offers a particularly demanding course of study combining knowledge of information technologies with knowledge of economics, statistics and mathematical sciences. Students who complete their studies in the Faculty are highly valued on the labour market. Nearly 1,800 students are enrolled in this Faculty, which hosts over 100 professors.

The orientation of international relations of the Faculty is grounded on the strategy of international relations of the University, via its integration in multilateral co-operation with world-known universities and top foreign schools and research institutions. In this respect the most important fact is the integration into European network CEMS (Community of European Management Schools), worldwide network PIM (Program in International Management) and a co-operation within Socrates/Erasmus program.

Most of the nine departments of the Faculty provide professional education to students. The Departments of Mathematics and Philosophy supply the main professional theoretical elements of the study programme. In addition to regular departments, the scientific-research department, the Laboratory for Intelligent System (LISP), has been established. This department focuses on research in the field of artificial intelligence. The scientific research activity of the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics corresponds to the specialisation of individual departments. Activities in this area are aimed at carrying out various department research programmes and acquiring and implementing grant projects administered by various grant agencies, including foreign ones.

The Faculty also co-operates with institutions such as ÚTIA (Institute of Information Theory and Automation), ČVUT (Czech Technical University), Czech Statistical Office, as well as a number of foreign universities.
