Founder of the school, Emanuel Pötting-Persing, lived in 1818-1898.

In the basic documents of Potting’s Institute, it is emphasized that the city will receive a school for the upbringing and education of girls; the school will bear the name of the Institute of Potting in Olomouc and that the language of instruction is Czech.
The ceremonial opening of the institute took place on 15 September 1895. For many decades, there have been many different types of schools and courses such as the School of Literature, Industrial (later the School for Women’s Economics), music, business, German, French, porcelain, wood burning, sewing and cooking.
The most significant and longest lasting in the school system of the Potting Institutewas a public business school founded in 1899 as the first business school in Moravia and the first Czech girls’ business school in the Czech lands.
