The Department of Management at the Faculty of Finance and Accountancy of BBS is one of the youngest yet vigorously developing departments of the Faculty.
The knowledge the Department represents covers a wide range of management sciences. There are not only economists but also sociologists, psychologists, teachers, engineers, and lawyers among our instructors, many of whom work as corporate consultants or development professionals besides their educational and research pursuits at the university.
Members of the Department strive to continually renew their methodological approaches. Besides lectures there are also seminars where our students analyse corporate case studies, and deal with real life problems. Their professional competencies are developed through individual and group tasks. We maintain a close relationship with the experts of prestigious companies who participate in the courses with professional presentations, competitive tenders, or they engage in supporting entrepreneurial ideas and provide direct mentoring and incubation to oversee our students’ first steps in the world of business. Team Academy, the specialisation of the Business Administration and Management undergraduate programme is a special form of training in Hungary. As part of the specialisation, students start their business and with the support of the Department, they can experience and learn the specifics of being an entrepreneur.
The members of our Department are involved in a wide range of research activities. We conduct research concerning the management and succession issues of small and medium-sized enterprises and family businesses, we also participate in national and organizational culture research, and festival research. Corporate sustainability, business ethics, organizational innovations, employee commitment and diversity are also among the fields researched by members of the Department.
