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.

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños
