Information from data, conclusion from information in the BA Program of Applied Economics
Students can learn economic data analysis methods in applied economics, but they also place great emphasis on practicality.
In economics, this means that the student can identify a problem and know which tool to use to solve it, said Eszter Szabó-Bakos, head of Applied Economics, in our previous interview when we asked about the 2020 renewal of the program.
We strive not only to provide the student with general knowledge, not a little of everything, but also to equip them with the knowledge of data analysis in economics and to be able to apply it.
After graduation, the student will hold a position in any field where logical thinking, data analysis, problem-solving skills, and quantitative skills are required. According to Corvinus' website, “there are those who analyze cartel activities at the GVH ( Hungarian Competition Authoroty), there are those who provide investment advice at Raiffeisen Bank, there are those who work as journalists, insurance product developers, market analysts, project managers, real estate market experts, actuaries, risk managers and educational experts.
From 2021, the biggest change will affect the Basic Management and Management period, which was previously the most popular choice among Corvinus applicants. The degree will be transformed not only in its content but also conceptually, and will unite four areas that previously operated as independent professions in the future.
It is important to emphasize that integrated courses do not end, you can still study marketing, tourism, human resource management or agribusiness at Corvinus - only students have to choose between specializations later, when they are more confident in economics and have a clearer picture regarding their future, emphasized Márta Aranyossy, Head of the Management Department.
After the merger, the first four semesters will be about foundation, after which students will be able to choose from sixteen specializations, among which they will also find the areas mentioned earlier. According to Corvinus, students graduated here can be employed in any area of business, be it financial, marketing, HR tasks, whether in a consulting or project management role. Many are based in banks, insurance companies, technology and consulting firms, large multinationals, tourism and hospitality or agrobusiness, but many also start their own businesses.
Students can learn about successful communication strategies, media planning trends, social media planning and its challenges, and creative writing, among other things, in Communication and Media Studies. The training is practice-oriented, students can work on several projects, and successful journalists and PR managers also give regular lectures. The program can also be a good basis for starting your own business, in addition to media and corporate placement, in our previous interview Elisabeth Jurczyszak, the founder of Roomie, who graduated in Communication and Media Studies last year, spoke about this.
The confidence that was strengthened in the public speech was definitely brought by the university. It also added a lot to the way I manage my tasks today in terms of organizing and scheduling a lot of project tasks, Liza said.
Students will learn, among other things, Strategic Communication, Media Economics, Visual and Virtual Communication, Data Journalism, as well as Digital Platforms and Genres and Crisis Communication. According to Corvinus' website, "most students can find work in communication agencies, PR, strategic consulting organizations, event organizers and training companies, communication and press (main) departments, print, electronic and online media, and publishers within two months of graduation.
In 2020, the International Business BA program was launched in a renewed form. The special feature of the training is that it starts exclusively in English as BA in International Business, and the internship can be completed by students during a compulsory foreign semester.
It is also an innovation that students can take mini-specializations. According to the supervisor, László Kacsirek, if the student wants to immerse himself in business education, for example in theoretical economics or the issue of sustainability, he can do so with several overlapping electives. In addition, several specializations will be launched and stress and conflict management and career planning will be integrated into the training.
Students can complete subjects such as Cross-Cultural Management, Global Markets and Players, International Business Protocol & Negotiation Skills during their training, and post-graduate logistics, they can choose from foreign trade, marketing, finance or consulting positions in international or domestic multinational companies.
In International Studies, students can learn how to navigate rapidly changing international conditions, learn about the workings of international organizations, or the economic and political implications of a diplomatic decision. Graduates can find employment in the public sector, foreign affairs, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, any company with extensive international relations not only in Hungary, but also in other countries in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the Corvinus website.
Immersion in Social Processes and Problems - Sociology BA Program
