At a university focusing on the humanities, economics and social sciences of the 21st century we do not prepare for professions but teach knowledge elements that future leaders can build on and expand as they like. Sensing a strong interest from high school students and knowing that similar majors at the world’s leading Anglo-Saxon universities combine classical education with the practical knowledge needed to fill political-economic leadership positions, Corvinus has formulated its own version of this core major and is the first to launch it. You do not have to decide at high school, on the basis of any random information, whether you need economic or political knowledge: you can make up your mind after having learned about both, with philosophy, especially ethics and philosophy of science, providing the necessary and broad human perspective. After three semesters, you are free to combine the two fields of knowledge that you consider most important, with a smaller proportion of the third field, but retaining it throughout. Join the elite of the 21st century!

In Economics and Econometrics Studies for 2021.
“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. ”
