Target group

The primary target group is bachelor and master level students in economics, international relations and finance. Nevertheless, students from other fields are also welcome to apply.

Course aim

The aim of the course is to provide a full picture on Hungarian and Central European economic, financial and political matters from global perspective. The specialty of the MNB Summer School lies in our teaching method: traditional sit-in academic lectures only constitute a small portion of the official program. We put large emphasis on interactivity: company visits, simulation games and case studies are important components of the course.
