Programme Content

Graduates of this double Hungarian and Irish degree programme will become generalists, prepared for management positions in companies or other organizations. You will be responsible for planning, organising, managing, and analysing business processes – in your chosen field of specialisation. The organizations you may work for can also be very diverse: in addition to multinational corporations and SMEs, graduates with the skills offered by this programme are also sought after in public administration (municipalities, ministries, schools) and in not-for-profit organizations (foundations, associations).

This bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management also provides the knowledge and develops the skills needed to set up and run your own business. In addition to providing a solid foundation in economic theory, the programme is highly practice-oriented. A very important criterion in the selection of our prestigious faculty is that they have real-life business experience. The seminars are always interactive, where tasks, assignments, and discussions prepare students for thinking and working both individually and together in teams.

The knowledge of professional English business language enables graduates to succeed in the business world. This can be further enhanced by a two-semester study at Dublin Business School in Ireland where you can acquire an Irish BSc (Hons.) in Business degree in addition to your Hungarian BSc degree in Business Administration and Management (gazdálkodási és menedzsment alapképzés) awarded by IBS.

You can also opt to take part in the Erasmus+ programme while studying at IBS.
