The Department of Business Economics, unlike the specialized departments, primarily offers foundation courses. We offer over 20 courses in the undergraduate, master’s and the higher-level vocational training programmes to both full-time and correspondence students.
Ten full-time and two part-time instructors, three researchers, two external lecturers, a secretary and two teaching assistants are involved in the work of the Department. 70% of the members of the Department have their PhD degree, including a university professor, 3 associate professors, 4 college associate professors and a senior lecturer. The teaching assistants of the Department have successfully participated in TDK (Scientific Students’ Association) conferences and national case study competitions (national 1st and 2nd place, respectively) in recent years.
The training spectrum of the Department is extremely wide: in the undergraduate programme: economics, methodology and business studies: 2 courses; compulsory foundation courses: 5 courses; compulsory social, environmental and regional studies: 7 courses; compulsory professional studies: 2 courses; social sciences foundation course: 1 course; optional courses: 2 courses. Higher-level vocational training: 2 courses. Master's programme: 4 courses. The Department offers 10 of its courses on its educational portfolio in English as well.
The Department of Business Economics pays special attention to the development of applied methodologies, in the framework of which we have several experimental projects going on (e.g. flipped classroom). The aim is to incorporate state-of-the-art educational techniques into daily teaching processes. The Department considers it as its main task to create experience-based learning, in the framework of which it has been using e-learning and blended-learning materials for years, both as part of correspondence and full-time courses. The instructors of the Department utilise electronic examination possibilities, while in seminars and lectures the various educational applications form an integral part of the training (e.g. Poll Everywhere, Kahoot, Socrative).
