Institute of Finance
The Institute of Finance is one of the leading academic centres in the field of finance in the Central European region. For decades, we have been teaching our students investment analysis, risk management, business valuation, financial mathematics and macrofinance. Our programmes are aligned with the exam requirements of the leading international professional bodies (CFA – Chartered Financial Analyst; EFFAS – European Federation of Financial Analysts’ Societies) and we work closely with companies in the financial sector in Budapest (e.g. MNB, Erste Bank, OTP Bank, BSE, KELER, Aegon, Morgan-Stanley, MSCI, BlackRock, Citi, Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PWC, Diageo).
Our aim is to provide the financial market professionals, who have a high level of theoretical and practical knowledge, and who are able to work at companies, banks, public authorities and as consultants. Above this, who are able to solve problems independently, creatively, and can carry out valuable research. We are proud that a high proportion of the best students in each year choose our programs. These programs have produced and continue to produce a significant proportion of the workforce in the Hungarian banking and finance sector.
