The cooperation between the two organisations has traditions of several years, or rather decades, in which this agreement means another milestone.
‘In the fast changing world of information technology, it is of high importance to be able to show up-to-date practical skills, good examples and corporate practices to our students, either in undergraduate, graduate or management training programmes. This cooperation ensures the more active involvement of practising professionals in both education processes and research cooperation”, said Péter Fehér, Dean of Postgraduate and Executive Programmes at the Corvinus University.
At the Business Informatics Bachelor and Master programmes, the Corvinus University of Budapest trains professionals who are able to give right or innovative responses to business expectations and challenges. The University’s post-graduate fintech manager, IT manager and business data analyst programmes serve the postgraduate education and the professional development of already actively working experts. According to the agreement, the parties will work jointly on the development of training programmes and on involving practical experts in these programmes. As part of the cooperation, the Corvinus University will also share its experiences and research results with the community of Hungarian chief information officers.
‘For the Hungarian Chief Information Officers’ Association, the agreement signed with the University is of special importance. This cooperation reinforces the bridge between the education sector and the market. The lecturers delegated by the Association are able to share their practical experiences collected as IT managers with students, therefore students can see already during their studies how they can utilise the skills obtained at the University in the labour market.’, pointed out Róbert Fritsch, the President of the Hungarian Chief Information Officers’ Association.
