What our students think

Jake Asmah

“Studying Sociology at Corvinus has taught me a lot. The compulsory modules are of crucial importance to anyone diving in the realm of social studies for the very first time. Besides, I’ve loved being able to take elective courses in business and finances which has helped me expand my expertise beyond sociology. After all, it’s a compound science requiring knowledge outside the range of one or two fields. It’s also been amazing to see more international students, it truly helps feeling more at home. The university is developing day by day which makes it a great destination for any student who’d like to keep themselves up to date. ”
