More information



The study program aims to train professionals for public and private sectors in the field of urban, regional, and environmental economics, planning, and policies, who have innovative theoretical and practical skills and knowledge to analyze problems and relations of economic, social, and ecological processes on local and regional levels. Our program pays particular attention to the analysis of future tendencies (e.g. increasing importance of cities, the appearance of autonomous vehicles, innovative urban management aspects, new business models) as well as to their spatial and environmental-sustainable consequences. Students have the possibility to take part in theoretical and applied research projects, thereby enlarging and deepening their knowledge as well as developing their international contacts. Our graduated students can establish their scientific careers at Széchenyi István University Doctoral School of Regional- and Business Administration Sciences.
