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.

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.

I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.
