University of Pecs – Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE)
Established in 1970, the Faculty of Business and Economics at UP, is the second oldest School of Economics in Hungary. Since then we have been 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 61 European and several non-European universities, allow 15-20% of our nearly 3,000 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 of FBE at UP are active and well-respected participants who integrate very well into social and economic research in Hungary and abroad. Today the school is not only regarded as an educational institution but also as a rich and creative network of faculty, current 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 centre.

Reaching Hungary (Budapest)
From most European countries, the easiest way of reaching Hungary is by plane, since flying is fast, comfortable and once you have checked in it is virtually impossible to get lost. There are flights from all over the world to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is also possible to travel to Hungary by international train services - this option is favoured by students coming from neighbouring countries.
