I have been the Dean of Budapest Business University – University of Applied Sciences Faculty of Commerce, Hospitality and Tourism since September 2016, from 2013 to 2021 I was the Head of Department of Hospitality at the Faculty.
As the Dean of Budapest Business University – University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Commerce, Hospitality and Tourism, which was founded more than a half century ago, continuous development, future orientation and building community are very important objectives for me. I am convinced that as a university of applied sciences, we must provide answers not only to the needs of the present age, but to the challenges of future as well. As a leader, my point of view is that students, academic and non-academic colleagues of the faculty should feel comfortable in this community, enjoy to be part of the BBU FCHT team, and they should be inspired by the environment and opportunities. They need to feel and know that the leadership of our faculty provides all possible support to achieve their study, professional and academic goals, because I firmly believe that useful, meaningful work can only be done, outstanding results for the future can only be achieved where the individual, no matter if he/she is a student or a lecturer, is surrounded by an inspiring, motivating environment.
