The rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the last 20 years affected all sectors of human activity. The changes also affected education that offers more accessible and high-efficiency learning using ICT to all people interested in broadening their knowledge and skills. Information and communication technologies have brought great potential for the part-time forms of education which meet the requirements of our time and offers efficient and most flexible model of education. Graduating in college or University is much easier.

Regard to the requirements of our time, namely the emergence and the life in the information society, the lack of jobs … etc., people with many years of experience, which are considered as experts in their profession, are going back to schools. This not only about people from the private sector, but a similar situation is also in the public sector. It is common when filling vacancies in public administration that is given priority for applicants with a university degree and then for candidates without a university education. Another situation occurred at positions based on the results of the elections, such as the mayor, town councilors, members of parliament, senators and others who do not pass the traditional selection procedures and for their functions are not set qualifications. Despite the fact that for the execution of their jobs is not required university degree, many of them are expanding key competencies.

This paper is focused on the impact of a one-year professional education program MBA (Master of Business Administration) specialized on the public administration sector with representatives of small and medium-sized Municipalities in the Czech Republic (mayors, deputy mayors) in order to ascertain the changes especially in the area of personal and managerial skills.
