From the next academic year, four popular master programmes will be available in one year at Corvinus University of Budapest, instead of the usual two years. The one-year master programmes will be open not only to the students studying at Corvinus.

From academic year 2023/24, students can get their master degree in one year in the following study programmes:

  • Supply Chain Management,
  • Public Policy and Management,
  • International Economy and Business,
  • Marketing.

The accelerated one-year master programmes will be open to students who have collected enough extra credits or relevant work experience in previous years. The opportunity, which is unique among Hungarian higher education institution in economics, will be open not only to the students of Corvinus, but any student who meets the general admission requirements of the given master programme:

  • bachelor’s degree,
  • a medium level language exam in English,
  • and enough credits.

According to the press release of Corvinus, acceptable professional experience will be any knowledge that fits the required programme:

  • work experience,
  • college programme,
  • specialised training,
  • Students’ Scientific Association (TDK) research in the subject of the programme,
  • any recognizable credit obtained earlier at Corvinus or other university, or a preparatory course for the entrance exam.

For students attending the self-funded programmes, it is an advantage that in this one-year master programme, they have to pay fees for one year only, but they can apply for the Corvinus Scholarship at the one-year programme, too.

We recently reported that Corvinus was again the only Hungarian higher education institution which had been included in the Financial Times’ list of the world’s best management training programmes this year. With its Management and Leadership master programme, Corvinus has been placed 98th in the top 100. In the indicator evaluating career support, the university was ranked in the top 10.
