Interview of Mr. Adam Bereczk:
Q: What is the higher education in the field of business studies like in your country?
A: Most of the universities (60-70%) are state owned and only 30-40% are privately owned. Only 20-30% of the lectures are in English.
Q: How hard is the application process?
A: It’s pretty hard, but it also depends on if the school is public or private.
Q: How long is the duration of studies?
A: The duration of business studies is 4 semesters.
Q: How is the overall quality of teaching in Hungary?
A: In Hungary the universities mostly follow other universities and their teaching examples. The privately owned universities may have some research made of the quality of teaching and teaching techniques.
Q: Is it easy for the newly graduates to find a job in the field of business?
A: Most students can find a job in half to two years after graduating. In Hungary there are more jobs than well educated workers which means that there is a shortage of workforce. If you can get in the university it is most likely that you will find a job after graduating.
Q: Is the system encouraging to work while studying
A: Yes, because these days it costs around 500-2000€ per semester to have a degree. Because of this it is very important for the students to find a job to pay for the tuition fee.
Q: Do you have any tips when doing business with Hungarian people?
A: Hungarians like to get evidence and proof so they can see the facts. Hungarians are also more talkative than Finns so they might talk you out.
