My name is Dr Judit Szilágyi, I have graduated from the Corvinus University of Budapest with a double major in economics and international relations. I have received my PhD degree from the same university, in the multidisciplinary studies of international relations. My doctoral dissertation was focused on the shifts in global economic and political power and the elements behind the success of the Chinese model. I became devoted to my research area while spending six years as a research fellow at the Institute of World Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the first three years of the period with the young researcher scholarship of the Academy. More recently I got a chance to further engage with different aspects of the Asian developmental models and several dimensions of social studies through research projects and conferences of the Oriental Business and Innovation Center of the Budapest Business School. During the Spring semester of the 2018-2019 academic year I was awarded by the OBIC with a research scholarship that I spent at the Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan, thus also giving me a chance to develop my perspectives about education and gain further experience in an international environment.; At our university, I am engaged mainly in the English language programs, both at the bachelor’s and the master’s levels, and mostly in the International Studies and International Economics and Business masters programs. I also regularly have the honor to tutor talented students, who have been giving me constant motivation by their enthusiasm and have been awarded prizes at several institutional and national scientific competitions. My teaching philosophy and methodology gives special attention to integrating and developing the wide range of values and knowledge of the diverse background of my students. The Hungarian term for “students” calling them “listeners” tells it all, also showing how much more potential we have via creating a mutually inspiring learning environment and encouraging active, critical and non-judgemental participation. I truly believe that this is the best way to engage in the process that we might also call lifelong learning and acquire those skills and abilities that can be genuinely useful in our professional and even private lives. I fully subscribe to the experience-based learning philosophy of the BGE and by constantly enriching, reshaping and targeting my knowledge and methodology, I try to keep my classes to the highest possible standards and at the same time enjoyable, varied and fun.
