Introduction of the departmentThe Department of Finance
The Department of Finance is one of the leading scientific workshops in the field of finance in the region of Central Europe. At the Department, we have nearly thirty staff members, their latest research results have regularly been published in international journals for more than a decade, and we teach students the most up-to-date knowledge content of investment analysis, risk management and corporate valuation. Our training programmes are members of the CFA Institute University Affiliation Programme. In our research and teaching activities, we closely collaborate with financial institutions present in Budapest (e.g., MNB, Erste Bank, OTP Bank, BÉT, Keler, Aegon, Morgan-Stanley, MSCI, BlackRock, Citi, Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PWC, Diageo).
Our training programmes are adjusted to the examination requirements of leading international organisations (CFA – Chartered Financial Analyst; EFFAS – European Federation of Financial Analysts’ Societies). Our goal is to train professionals who, equipped with a high level of theoretical and practical knowledge, can succeed in companies, banks, state organisations, or consulting firms alike, being able to solve problems independently and perform creative and research work.
We support the professional development of our students through not only class-room sessions but also consultations offered to students engaged in Scientific Students’ Association (TDK) activities and by involving students in education as demonstrators. We aim to develop a good relationship with our students outside University lessons as well, and therefore regularly organize leisure programmes for them. Our students’ post-University careers is also important to us; we are in constant contact with our extensive alumni community.
