International Relations

The Budapest Business School (BBS) is a higher education institution with wide-ranging international relations. It has active connections with more than 200 foreign higher education institutions in nearly 40 countries on five continents.

Types of international cooperation can fall into the following categories of relations:

  1. Strategic cooperation: cooperation agreements based on dual award programmes, joint studies, research and joint projects.
  2. Relations based on student, teacher and staff mobility within the framework of Erasmus and CEEPUS programmes.
  3. Bilateral educational, research and scientific cooperation outside the scope of Erasmus and CEEPUS programmes.

There are academic programmes in international cooperation at several levels at BBS. Students taking part in the International Business Economics programme in English can be awarded the degree of a Dutch partner institution, the Avans Hogeschool's International School, Breda or a German partner HEI, the Fachhochschule Frankfurt am Main University of Applied Sciences, Frankfurt am Main. The same study programme in French is jointly run with the University of Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens. Graduates of this programme are also awarded a French degree. In addition to dual award programmes, there are four bachelor programmes running in foreign languages: International Business Economics in English and in French, Commerce and Marketing in English and in German, Finance and Accounting in English, while Tourism and Catering in English and in German. BBS has three English-language Master’s Programmes: Tourism-Management, International Relations and International Economics and Business. 

The objective of BBS is to develop new relations and to strengthen the already existing ones. BBS takes part in numerous international projects - either as a consortium leader or consortium partner. At present we have exchange agreements with more than 170 institutions of higher education in nearly 30 countries and we have a wide range of Finnish, French, German, and Spanish connections within the framework of Erasmus programmes.

BBS is noted for its wider-ranging Asian relations that include cooperation with Japanese, Chinese, Indonesia, Russian, Thai, Taiwan and Vietnamese higher education institutions.

The institution is a member of several international organisations such as EURASHE for practice-oriented institutions in higher education, EDEN the members of which are institutions and experts concerned with distance and e-learning, SPACE which is the network of institutions focusing on business studies and language teaching, EUA, Europe's most important association in higher education, IAU, the UNESCO-based worldwide association of HE institutions and EURAS, union of the Eurasian universities.
