Marketable Knowledge

Shared Service Centres (SSCs) represent one of Hungary’s fastest-growing sectors and offer a variety of positions in a number of major Hungarian cities – including Szeged – for young graduates, with or without experience, who speak foreign languages.

Every year, thousands of new positions open in the SSC sector for professionals with a degree in economics and a good command of foreign languages. Many SZTE graduates – especially those from the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the Faculty of Arts – choose shared services centres as a first workplace.


This is why the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration has fully supported the SSC Basics course launched jointly with BDO - the fifth largest international network of public accounting, tax and advisory firms with representation in 154 countries. Since 2016, The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Szeged (SZTE) has been jointly training professionals, with BDO and throughout this programme, leading professionals share their experience, insight and knowledge in topics that are not covered in higher education in Hungary.


This unique course aims to better prepare students for future SSC positions by offering sector-specific information in topics, like the processes or the multicultural environment of service centres. “The professional contribution of the cooperating partner, BDO, makes this course especially valuable” says Dr. Márton Vilmányi, dean of SZTE’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. “BDO is an outstanding educational institute for the domestic SSC sector with exceptional knowledge of this field.

SZTE Experience

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

My name is Cherbi Imane and I am 23 years old from Algeria. I am spending my last semester at the University of Szeged Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Being an MA student of Applied Linguistics, University of Szeged offered me a chance to gain sufficient knowledge about my field of study. I choose the University of Szeged simply because it is a highly ranked academic institution both nationally and internationally; also because of the variety of programs that they have for international students.

I love everything in Szeged: every corner of every street, I will always keep them in my heart. I take photos of the city when walking around and I am planning to launch a blog to promote this beautiful corner of Hungary among international students. People of Szeged are caring, always smiling and we are living peacefully together. I have never felt isolated or neglected. As a coffee lover, i always enjoy having my favorite type of coffee in different coffees in Szeged. Lookin for calmness and nature vibes, I would certainly walk by the Tisza river whenever I want.
