You can apply for these master’s programmes

The 2021 admission has started for undergraduate and master’s programmes, and graduate undergraduate students are facing a serious decision: stay in higher education for another two years, or test themselves in the labour market. In our five-part article series, we wish to present the master’s programmes starting at Corvinus in groups, making it easier for students to make a decision.

The programme is recommended by Corvinus for those who wish to work in the financial sector with extensive theoretical and methodological knowledge. The aim of the programme is to train professionals who have an insight into financial processes in the corporate, banking and public finance fields, on the basis of which they will be able to prepare and make decisions. The training is supported by the Finance Laboratory (Finlab) equipped with Bloomberg and Reuters terminals. During the programme, Corvinus cooperates with such large companies as BSE, Citibank, Deloitte, McKinsey, Morgan Stanley, MSCI, OTP, among others, and students can also join the CEMS double degree programme. Graduates can work as investment analysts, bank risk managers, portfolio managers, crisis managers, corporate valuers in government agencies, investment banks and financial institutions, both nationally and internationally.

Due to large databases, an increasing number of companies and institutions employ economic analysts to facilitate fact-based decision-making through their work. The aim of the Economic Analyst master's programme is to train analysts who understand and can make analyses, with the help of data, economic regularities. Experts with economic analytical competencies are not currently trained in any other Hungarian higher education institution.

" The competence and expertise that an economic analysis master's programme provides is sorely lacking in the labour market today, said Álmos Telegdy, the programme officer in our previous interview, about the renewal of the Economic Analyst programme. He added that both specialisations are designed to supplement or provide this knowledge so that the graduate student is able to ask economic questions on the one hand, and to answer them empirically on the other. "

There are two specialisations in the programme. The Macroeconomic Analyst specialisation provides actual macroeconomic and financial knowledge, which is transferred to the implementation phase with economic policy knowledge. The aim of the Market Analyst specialisation is to enable students to understand the internal operation of companies and the market relations between companies, and then to be able to analyse these processes both theoretically and empirically. The knowledge gained here is highly valued by large companies such as MOL and OTP, consulting companies such as McKinsey and Big4, market research companies such as Nielsen, and a number of government institutions (MNB, HCA) and international organisations (European Commission, OECD).

The aim of the programme is to prepare students to resolve business problems with IT tools. In addition to technical interest, managerial skills and the ability to perform organisational and management tasks are also important. The training will focus on leading companies in the international IT market, which will provide direct access to state-of-the-art technologies and methods and practical experience, according to Corvinus.

Graduates can work in international and national large companies, small and medium-sized enterprises as business informatics, as systems analysts, IT consultants, IT auditors and business intelligence experts.

In this programme, economists are trained who are sensitive to the social issues of our time, such as an aging society, and would examine their effects.

During the two-year training, they are able to learn about what family policy discusses, how its changes affect the decision-making of individual families, households and consumer habits. With the acquired knowledge, you will be prepared to form family policy, analyse and forecast processes. With a master’s degree, you can find employment in the public and civil sectors, both nationally and internationally, such as at the United Nations or the European Union.
