Established in 1970, the Faculty of Business and Economics at UP, is the second oldest School of Economics in Hungary, that has become a leading player in Hungarian Higher Education. With more than 3,000 students enrolled in our programs, we offer up-to-date education and research in Business Sciences and the comprehensive theoretical, methodological and practical knowledge ensures our students' success in their career. The school’s wide range of international partnerships, with 73 European and several non-European universities, allow 15-20% of our students to spend at least one semester abroad. To broaden their opportunities we have established strong collaboration with the business and entrepreneurial environment. The outstanding number of highly qualified faculty and the doctoral students at FBE are active and respected participants who integrate very well into social and economic research in Hungary and abroad. The school is not only an educational institution but also a rich and creative network of faculty, students, international and corporate specialists, and alumni in senior management positions or dynamic entrepreneurs. FBE is a community of practitioners in the economic sciences and the business world and, as such, a hugely significant regional knowledge center.
Besides being the oldest university in the country, the University of Pécs has earned a prominent position in terms of international excellence as well. The entire institution, as well as many of our faculties and study programs took leading positions in highly recognized international rankings.
The University of Pécs celebrates the 650th jubilee of its foundation in 2017. On this festive occasion our institution organizes a series of ceremonial events which will be significant for the city of Pécs, the Transdanubian region and for Hungary as well.
