Admission Requirements

  • a first or second class Bachelor degree in any field of studies or relevant work experience for the International Management/Human Resource Management/IT for Business Data Analytics (as they also make career change possible),
  • a first or second class Bachelor degree related to business/finance/marketing or relevant work experience for the Financial Management or Marketing Management (as they deepen your knowledge in these areas),
  • passport,
  • sufficient English skills and motivation that we check with an Orientation Interview (conducted via Zoom after the application fee payment) and the ONLINE English language test of IBS. If you are a native speaker of English, have studied in English or have an English language certificate with sufficient points, you do not need to write our online English test, just have the Orientation interview. However, neither of these certificates are required.

Please note that you will have to present your original BA degree and its English translation when you enroll at IBS before the programme starts!

Work Beside MSc Studies

With a study residence permit you can work up to 24 hours/week. There is a possibility to extend your study permit for 6-month after graduation if you are looking for a job and are registered with an employment agency.

You will have classes in the evenings, so you can start looking for a job right from the start of the MSc programme. Our Career Office can assist you with their database of partner companies after enrolment and you can also check out this public website: http://www.profession.hu/en/

Please note that doing your MSc beside work is highly demanding.

Twice a year the Career Office organizes a job fair called Big Day just for IBS students where some of our corporate partners participate with their internship or job offers.
