Career opportunities

When we first designed our undergraduate (ELTECON-BA) program in Economics at ELTE University, we made it a tenet to use the templates of the best such programs in the world, to use textbooks widely used at the best colleges, to provide a quality education not saving our own efforts, to expect students to work a lot, to require them to prove they did and to give a lot of consideration to what skills arm them best for their career. Our ambition for excellence seems to have been validated by the placement of our alumni so far.

92% of the first three cohorts of the alumni of our BA program went on to MA-level studies, 55% of them studying for a degree in Economics at universities accredited outside of Hungary, at high-prestige competitive schools like New York University (NYU), London School of Economics (LSE), Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Universidad de Alicante, Institut für Höhere Studien (IHS), Universidad Carlos III, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, University of St. Gallen, Tilburg University and Central European University (CEU). We are proud that our alumni have performed well in these programs, several of them scoring at the very top of their class.

Some of our BA alumni chose other, related, subjects than Economics proper for their graduate studies, for instance, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (MA in Cognitive Science), at Københavns Universitet (MA in Agricultural Economics), at the Glasgow Business School; others were employed right out of school at well-known companies like MOL, a Magyar Telekom (a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom), or the insurance giant Allianz.
