7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY AT CORVINUS

1. CORVINUS SHAPES YOUR CAREER

Alumni have expressed that their semester at Corvinus was an important topic in their job interviews. Their future employers were really interested to learn how the students benefited from studying abroad, especially in Budapest which is considered by some as an unusual destination compared to London, Paris or Barcelona. Hence students’ study abroad experience was perceived as a competitive advantage both because they studied at a prestigious university and also because of the diverse opporutunities provided by Budapest’s unique location.      

It is extremely important for employers to see what skills students acquired during their semeter at Corvinus. Therefore, the most essential questions that students should be able to answer after their semester at Corvinus are: How can I use the skills I acquired in my CV? or How did my study abroad semester add value  to my career?

 

 

2. QUALITY ACADEMICS

The International Study Programs (ISP) focuses on internationalization and research. We put a particular emphasis on attracting outstanding academic staff from all around the world. The ISP’s academic staff consists of full time and guest professors from more than 10 different countries.

The high quality of education offered by CBS is guaranteed by the fact that each subject is taught by lecturers who are specialists in the given science or discipline, equipped with the necessary academic and practical knowledge.

This commitment to excellence is in part reflected through the acheivements our alumni who, since 1990, have taken up key leadership positions in Hungary: 10 Ministers of Finance, 7 Ministers of Economy, 4 Governors of the Hungarian National Bank, the presidents of the State Audit Office, several CEOs and Chairmen of major Hungarian companies.

Spending a semester abroad can have a great impact on your life, your attitude, how you look at things or what you think about the world in general.

During your stay in Budapest you automatically become a global citizen.

At the end of your semester you’ll better understand the world from a broader perspective, you’ll gain an extensive knowledge of this part of the world, you will have visited all the famous sights in Budapest, you will have made many local and international friends, and you’ll also know why Hungarians put their boots in the window on December 6th and why women don’t look forward to Easter Monday.

8......AND YOU ARE IN BUDAPEST!

As you wander through the city and observe the everyday life of Hungarians, you will discover tons of details which textbooks cannot teach you.

Budapest is small enough to find your way around really easily and in a short period of time but at the same time it’s big enough to continuously provide new experiences and learning opportunities. In recent years Budapest is becoming more and more an increasingly popular city among students and travellers and it seems there's nothing cooler than saying "I studied in Budapest."
