Description Based on the qualitative and quantitative analysis, this study aims at analyzing the absence of public sector management (so needed for the practice of public administration), as one of the essential subjects of the educational offer in the Czech and Slovak Republic. The qualitative analysis examines an assumption that the offer of programs in the management of public sector area is affected by the procedure of national accreditation. The quantitative part analyses the impact of selected indicators as an unemployment trend or nominal wages per number of students. The analysis was performed in Slovak setting. It is highly probable that the national system of accreditations, especially the Slovak one, considerably affects the study offer of the field in question. The conclusion hints at the fact that potential influencing factors – as unemployment growth or wage stability – do not act as motivation to study public area management.
