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.

SZTE Experience

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.
