Introduction to GTK
The Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (GTK) of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) is one of the prime institutions of higher education in Hungary specialized in the fields of business, economics and social sciences.
By establishing the first Faculty of Economic Sciences in 1934 in the country, the Hungarian Royal Palatine Joseph University of Technology and Economics, the predecessor of BME, has pioneered the education of social sciences in Hungary. Apart from providing degrees in economics and business studies, the Faculty also played a role in teaching students of the engineering faculties of the university.
Although the Faculty was terminated by the Hungarian Parliament in 1948 (after World War II), it was re-established fifty years later in 1998 as a result of increasing demand for highly qualified experts with a technological, economic, management, communication and social science background.
The Faculty has more than 3000 students studying in 5 undergraduate (BA/BSc), 9 graduate (MA/MSc) and one doctoral program (Ph.D.) taught by more than 100 professors in the fields of economic and social sciences.
Our programs are among the best degree programs in Hungary in social sciences. According to the latest Hungarian rankings, our bachelor programs in Technical Management and in Communication and Media Science are ranked number 1 in the country, while our Bachelor in Business Administration and Management and Bachelor in Finance and Accounting programs occupy the 2nd and 3rd positions in their respective fields.
