Let me greet you as the Rector of Budapest Business School (BBS). The Budapest Business School winning the Higher Education Quality Award in 2010 was established on 1 January 2000 through the integration of three even earlier successful institutions. Through legal continuity with the predecessor institutinos, BBS looks back on a past of more than 150 years. We are the largest business college in Hungary, about 18 000 students enrolled in our different training programmes. It has three Colleges in the seat, in Budapest: the College of Commerce, Catering and Tourism, the College of International Management and Business, and the College of Finance and Accountancy. The Zalaegerszeg College of Business Administration runs programmes in Zalaegerszeg. BBS is a practice-oriented institution of higher education; its programmes cover the whole range of business sciences, and it offers its studentes useful knowledge and a degree which is held in high esteem in the labour market.
The mission of Budapest Business School is to be a domestically and internationally attractive, Europe-wide and leading institution of higher education in the field of economic and social sciences and the related disciplines in Hungarian and foreign languages, in Bachelor, Master programmes, higher vocational training programmes, and post-graduate specialized training programmes in full-time, part-time and distance-learning.
We have been and will continue to strive that our students could study in an educational culture with the help of which they will be able to perform well both in business life and public administration as theoretically well-equipped, broad-minded, practice-oriented experts with high ethical standards, innovative skills, sound professional expertise, demonstrating profession- specific foreign language skills.
