The list of international partner universities has been expanded
Corvinus signed agreements with 5 new international prestigious partners in 2021.

How are partners selected?
At its meeting on 10 June 2021, the International Commission adopted the current criteria for extending international partnership agreements and entering into new ones, which include the following quality criteria for cooperating partner institutions:
position in international and domestic rankings of institutions and fields of expertise
results in terms of international accreditation and certification
membership in international professional networks
our prior experience concerning, and intensity of, professional relationships with them (e.g., degree of student, staff and lecturer mobility, joint research applications, etc.)
aspects to be considered on an individual basis (e.g., regional focus, special training or doctoral programmes, etc.)
691 students submitted their application for international partial training in November 2021, to spend the autumn or spring semester of the next academic year at a partner university. As there are still many places available, it is also worth applying in the additional applications period, which is expected to open in May, for those who have not yet applied but would like to study at an international university in the spring of 2023.
