About dual education
Dual training is a special form of education in higher education. It aims to align higher education with labour market demands through the practice driven training of future professionals. Participation in dual training provides companies with the opportunity to employ student-employees during the training period who know the company and its processes well and learn about domestic and international professional news directly by way of their close partnership with the university. Currently five undergraduate programmes offer dual training at BBS in partnership with over 50 corporate partners, and we are continuously expanding our dual training portfolio. 


Budapest Business School (BBS) has participated in dual training since 2014 with a constantly increasing number of participating companies and students in the training. In 2019, over 50 partner companies offered positions for dual training for future students. This page features the key information we compiled for current and future partner companies to assist them in their way to become a partner from first contact to contracting. 

FAQ

BBS currently offers dual training in the following programmes:

  • Business Administration and Management (FFA)
  • Commerce and Marketing (FCHT, FIMB)
  • International Business Economics (FIMB)
  • Finance and Accounting (FFA)
  • Tourism and Catering (FCHT)

Dual training is a very close form of cooperation, where all participants – partners, institutions, students – have obligations and additional responsibilities to undertake as well as enormous benefits at the same time. Key points for companies:

  • opportunity to employ one or more committed, performance driven students with a good understanding of the company and its workflows,
  • partner organisations can use their own application procedure to select the student(s),
  • receive first-hand information on technical innovations, Hungarian and international researches, and participate in joint applications,
  • send your employees to advance their skills at professional conferences and postgraduate advanced training courses organised by the institution,
  • partners have consultation rights in developing the priorities of the theoretical curriculum, and
  • you may realise significant cost savings by employing a student pursuing dual training.

The partner organisation closely cooperates with the University and the student during the training, assesses student-employees performance through project assignments and uses its own method to document performance in conformity with the training plan developed jointly with the institution.

Partner organisations participating in the programme must provide the infrastructure and conditions required for the training as well as the professionally prepared practical instructors (professional mentors) for student-employees’ practical training during the training period who provide feedback on students’ performance.

In addition, students are entitled to remuneration for the whole period of training based on the student employment contract pursuant to the effective statutory requirements, that is, students are entitled to a salary during the periods spent both at the partner organisation and at the institution. After students complete their studies, partner organisations may decide to continue to employ students under an employment contract.

The monthly remuneration payable to dual training students corresponds to 65% of the minimum wage, and companies are exempt from the payment of contributions over the wage. Tax liability applies only to the share above the minimum wage.

Pursuant to Section 2(1) of Government Decree No. 367/2019. (XII. 30.) on the mandatory minimum wage and guaranteed wage minimum, the minimum wage increased to HUF 161,000 in 2020. The decree came into force on 01 January 2020, therefore, it is applicable to students’ remuneration from January.

As a first step, you should find information on dual majors and programmes, available HERE, and on the applicable regulations. The next step should be to contact us to begin the necessary consultations required for contracting and to jointly develop the relevant training plan for training at your company.

The Dual Education Centre of BBS assists our partners throughout the whole process.

Our university colleague responsible for the training is Dr Tamás Kozák, head of the department, college associate professor, who you can contact directly at Kozak.Tamas@uni-bge.hu.
