Welcome of the Leadership

Dear First Year Students,

Congratulations on your admission, allow us to warmly greet to you among the members of the Corvinus University of Budapest! 

You will shortly commence your studies at one of the best universities of Hungary in the fields of social, economic and business sciences. While it is important to preserve the values of our 72-year past, we believe in competitiveness, progress and change. It was this belief that guided us when a year ago our governance model changed: the former state-maintained higher education institution became a foundation-controlled university. In fact, the foundation model implies more flexible operation, long-term and predictable planning. In a few weeks you will also get the opportunity to experience how special it is to be a Corvinus student. The study programs of the revamped Corvinus University are globally competitive, our students receive state-of-the-art knowledge and a degree that will hold its value. Our ambition is for you to become creative and thinking professionals. Together with our lecturers, researchers and other staff members we work towards figuring among the best universities of the world through constant renewal. We train the region’s social and business elites, of who you will be proud members in a few years.

The coming years, however, will not only be about studying. Do not hesitate to immerse in the community life of the university. You may apply for admission to one of the excellent Colleges of Advanced Studies. You may enrich yourself with memorable moments at our events, conferences. Corvinus is not merely a university, it is a cohesive community that is good and rewarding to belong to. The friendships, the network of contacts that you build here will accompany and support you throughout your life. We are confident that we can achieve more together with you.

So be welcome to Corvinus!
