Budapest, the city combining the former towns of Buda, Obuda, and Pest, is the capital of Hungary and one of the largest cities in the European Union. Rich with history, Budapest offers international students the opportunity to study in what is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. World Heritage sites includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square, and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second-oldest metro line in the world. Budapest is also known for its geothermal springs, of which it has around 80 and its large thermal water cave system, which has led locals and tourists alike spending many hours in the numerous bath houses.
Corvinus University of Budapest (formerly BUESPA) is Hungary's leading university in business, economics, and the social sciences. Located on the Danube River, on the Pest side of the city, Corvinus offers students an ideal location to study. The SUNY Oswego program is centered in the International Studies Center (ISC) of Corvinus University, which provides excellent support for international students.
Students studying abroad at Corvinus University of Budapest will be studying in the Business Faculty. Student can view past course offerings on Covinus' website, but should be sure to search by Business Faculty, as they will be limited to those classes.
Students are responsible booking housing on their own. Residence hall living is not available. There are a variety of apartment listings available online, with some student focused, like SRS Budapest. Most students will book temporary accommodations for the first week in Hungary and spend their free time in between orientation sessions to look at the apartments they are interested in before signing a lease. Students may cook for themselves or eat in the student restaurants near the university. Costs for restaurant meals are inexpensive by US standards, while food costs in the markets will appear similar to those in the US.
