"I always warn my students of the dangers of having a Euro-centric view of the world. Europe is but a small peninsula. We must look at the global world with the eyes of others, too."

László Várkonyi, Professor at the Department of International Studies, Former Ambassador

"The subjects that we study and the school's atmosphere play a very important role in integrating knowledge into the practice."
