About Budapest Business School (BBS):
Budapest Business School (BBS) – University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest higher education institutions in Hungary. BBS was established on 1 January 2000 as a result of the merger of its three legal predecessors: the College of Commerce, Catering and Tourism, the College of International Management and Business, and the College of Finance and Accountancy. The new institution preserved the established traditions and spirit of its predecessors, but extended its scope to cover the entire business science area, and it grew into a practice-oriented higher education institution on a European scale and became the biggest Hungarian college, educating a total of 20,000 students.
BBS has three Faculties in Budapest: the Faculty of Commerce, Catering and Tourism; the Faculty of International Management and Business; and the Faculty of Finance and Accountancy. Graduates of the legal predecessor institutions and those who obtained their degrees from BBS during the recent years have become experts and professionals in their field and they are in great demand in both the domestic and the international labor market. This is partly the outcome of the institution’s constant quest for innovation, and a series of training courses adapted to market requirements have been launched.
The Institution was awarded the Higher Education Quality Award in 2010, and since 2012 it is the holder of the ISO 9001:2009 certificate. In 2015 the BBS received the title of University of Applied Sciences.
