The five English-language master’s programmes to be launched at Corvinus are all new to higher education in Hungary. Four of the five courses will last one year instead of the usual two. The new courses:
It is the only two-year course among the new English-language MA programmes and is a unique programme at regional level, too. It focuses on the triad of consumer and organisational behaviour and decisions, and social and economic change.
“Our students will become high-level, interdisciplinary professionals with a range of job opportunities from HR and marketing to research roles, based on international experience” – says Corvinus press release.
The one-year course will train students to become diplomats, supported not only by an intensive curriculum and compulsory work placements, but also by support for shorter study trips abroad.
This course is a one-year intensive version of the MA programme of Marketing. “We train future leaders who can make complex marketing strategy decisions across different sectors and types of business, in both local and international markets,” says Corvinus.
It is a one-year alternative to the master’s programme of Supply Chain Management. The objective of the programme is to train supply chain managers who understand the relations of integrated corporate logistic management and are able to control the corporate logistics system and the supply chains and networks of companies.
It is the one-year version of the master’s programme of Economics and Public Policy. The objective of the programme is to train economists who are able to effectively participate in community governance at local/regional, national and supranational levels.
The new courses will run on a quarterly schedule with the advantage that students will study fewer subjects at the same time, giving them the opportunity to study a subject in more depth.
The Corvinus announcement on the launch of the new master’s courses points out that the Corvinus Scholarship is awarded for one academic year, so those studying for a one-year master’s programme in this format are guaranteed free of charge for the entire curriculum. In addition, a bachelor’s degree with an average of A grades guarantees admission to Corvinus Scholarship for the new master’s programmes.
Applications for the five new programmes can be submitted via felvi.hu. If you have already submitted your application, you can still modify it by adding new programmes or deleting existing ones until 15 February.
Following Corvinus’ announcement last year, we wrote earlier that in addition to the five new courses currently offered, the university will launch three more new English-language courses from September 2023, which were not previously available in Hungary. Two of them (Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Data Science in Business) will be launched as a BA programme, while Political Economy as a MA programme.
