Corvinus University of Budapest Description

-Corvinus University is the most excellent educational institution in Hungary in the field of economic and social sciences. Moreover, more than that: a community to which it is good and worthwhile to belong. Our teachers are excellent, our students are talented, and our institution offers up-to-date knowledge, a network of contacts and a secure future.

-Building on our almost 100-year-old tradition, we are constantly evolving. We work with our teachers, researchers and staff to make the constantly renewing Corvinus one of the best universities in the world, and here, in Hungary, we form the social and economic elite of the region. Our goal is to ensure that talented students do not have to choose a foreign university in order to gain internationally recognized, competitive and marketable knowledge. We strive to produce as many research results as possible that are interesting for Hungary, Europe and the world, that elicit recognition and promote our common cause. Our goal is to educate free people; we believe in the universality of knowledge and that thinking is based on finding differences that we become aware of through discussions.

-For us, only talent and ambition matter. That’s all it takes for someone to be our student. Social and financial situation should not be a barrier to learning: we have also created the Corvinus Scholarship Program so that our best, most talented students can study on an excellence basis, free of charge.

-Corvinus means quality and opportunity: up-to-date and useful knowledge, a wide range of contact capital, career opportunities, lifelong friendships, community. At our renewable university, we strive to achieve even more together.

-Corvinus University is the most excellent educational institution in Hungary in the field of economic and social sciences. The university-level training - similarly to the leading countries of the world - started in 1920 at the independently operating Hungarian Royal Faculty of Economics in Budapest. 

-We believe in continuous improvement that we should not be satisfied with the results we have achieved so far. That’s why we decided from July 2019 to move from a state-maintained university to a state-foundation-maintained university. The foundation model provides more flexible operation, but also the possibility of long-term and predictable planning.

-Our goal is no less than to make Corvinus an international university. By 2030, our university should be the leading institution in Central Europe in the field of economic and social sciences in the international higher education rankings.

Közgáz Campus Description

The traditional Közgáz Campus of Corvinus University of Budapest is comprised of three main units: Buildings E, C and Sóház are in the direct vicinity of each other.

Building E:
The former Main Customs House built on an area of almost one hectare is the classic pillar of the Danube panorama of the Pest side; visitors often identify Corvinus with this classic building, designed by Miklós Ybl, as one of his main accomplishments. The two-storey building reflects the values of CUB, as it is the perfect mix of past and future, built on strong foundations.

The marble and granite- decorated building has become one of the most iconic symbols of Budapest, its glass roofed lobby allowing natural light in in every season. Building E hosts the business courses, remaining true to its name „Közgáz” (economics). In its huge lobby is the Corvinus Shop, which sells products sporting the Corvinus logo, symbolizing the togetherness, as well as mandatory textbooks. Besides, there are more cafeterias that sell coffee, sandwiches and other refreshments.

Building E mainly has the Presidential and Rector’s offices, as well as is the main provider of student educational services, the Student Services Centre.

Sóház (Salt House):
After leaving Building E through the eastern gate, only a few steps away is the Sóház building, which hosts the Information Technology Centre, as well as several computer labs. The smallest unit of the university campus has always hosted IT-related courses. The glass-covered building is light in every season, and your comfort is further enhanced by the panoramic view of the Danube and the cloakroom downstairs.

Building C:
Building C of the university campus is behind Sóház. On the corridors of this modern style building you can mostly meet students of social sciences. The modern and light spaces of Building C are the perfect complementary match to the classic style of Building E, and these, together with Sóház represent the „Corvinus feeling” the best.

On the ground floor of Building E there is a reception desk, a cafeteria and a cloakroom, and convenient elevators provide easy access to the building for students with disabilities as well.

The library of CUB is on the first floor of Building C, where large reading rooms welcome those hungry for information. Silence and peace is guaranteed; your concentration will not be disrupted even by the outside temperature, as optimal circumstances are provided by the central air conditioning and heating system of the building.
