To broaden their opportunities we have established strong collaboration with the business and entrepreneurial environment. The outstanding number of highly qualified faculty and 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 significant regional knowledge center.
