Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the French IPAG Business School signed a new student exchange agreement

The University of Szeged Faculty of Economics and Business Administration signed a new student exchange agreement with the French IPAG Business School.

The students of the Faculty will soon have the opportunity to spend weeks, months or even a whole semester in France and continue with their studies there via this new exchange programme.


The IPAG Business School is listed as the third best French business school in the Shanghai Ranking system. The school has remained a non-profit, independent organisation for over 50 years. The school already has more than 130 partner institutions all over the world but as Bernard Terrany, the member of the French delegation and Director of Development and International Relations of IPAG expressed “Hungary was still missing from the list”.

Dr. Péter Kovács, the dean of the Faculty, already signed an agreement with IPAG in January, so this event was just another step towards the future collaboration of the two universities.

The exchange programme is not only available for BSc and MSc students but also for the professors and the staff of the Faculty. Students of the soon to be launched Turism and Hospitality BSc Programme will have the opportunity to travel abroad and continue with their studies or complete the obligatory trainee programme in France as well.

The collaboration is the beginning of a long and sustainable developement period - it may start with an exchange programme but it is not going to stop there. The collaboration has other possibilities too like triple programmes including a third country or a potential double degree programme. Students taking part in this potential double degree programme may earn a degree from each university at the end of their studies.


The IPAG Business School will take part in the 12th International Week organised by the SZTE Faculty of Economics and Business Administration next April.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
