The varied scholarly commitments and the complexity of the Faculty often remind us of a complete university instead of a single school with a well-defined, narrow academic focus. Due to its comprehensive nature, BME GTK is involved in wide ranging and multidisciplinary national and international academic, research, and educational activities.
Typical areas include applied pedagogy, workplace ergonomics, environmental management, sustainable urban development, income distribution, quality management, logistics, business economics, corporate communications, investment, controlling, corporate finance, demographics, communication and media studies, history of science, and argumentation theory.
The Faculty has membership, at organizational and individual level, of more than fifty international professional organizations and institutions, while several faculty members occupy leading positions on professional bodies such as steering committees and editorial boards. The number of international scientific collaborations and projects has increased continuously in recent years, in both bilateral and multilateral form with the EU.
In addition to externally funded cooperations, a significant amount of individual research activity is carried out at the Faculty for the purposes of doctoral and post-doctoral investigation, curriculum and methodology development and publication. Within these activities the two doctoral (Ph.D.) schools of the Faculty (in Business and Management, and in History and Philosophy of Science) play a decisive role.
