Applied economics BA program
Our program offers rigorous training in the methods and main topics of Economics. Building upon the curricula of the best American and European programs and using up-to-date textbooks, our teaching staff have built a carefully crafted and interconnected set of demanding courses with one goal in mind: to turn every student, prepared to put in the necessary work, into an accomplished young professional who can work as an analyst or as a civil servant for government agencies, who can carry on their studies at M.A. level towards becoming a researcher or a professor, or who can use their skills and competency in any other field from journalism to business to data analysis. Many of our faculty have studied or worked abroad, and we pride ourselves in providing a nurturing environment with small classes and open doors. Our courses range from the obligatory staples (Mathematics, Statistics, Micro-, Macroeconomics, Econometrics) to applied elective courses, usually including hands-on work with data, offered by some of the best research economists of Budapest.
