The significance of education in today’s global economy is unquestionable. Studies indicate that by 2025 university and college student numbers worldwide will rise to 262 million from the current 170 million. In developing regions, especially in Asia, the number of people who wish to acquire internationally competitive skills in order to meet the challenges posed by the contemporary global economy and labour market demands is growing fast.
Higher education in Hungary provides internationally competitive knowledge in many fields of expertise. However, further prospects could be explored by developing the available infrastructure and intensifying cooperation between international players with relevance in higher education.
The Hungarian National Trading House strives to serve the Hungarian higher education sector by utilising its existing international connections, map current international higher education trends, deepen relations with the sector’s most important players in Hungary and abroad, and utilise experiences available for the benefit of developing Hungarian higher education further.
Foreign students studying in Hungary who acquire professional skills for certain sectors in Hungarian institutions of higher education can thus become familiar with innovative Hungarian thinking, technological solutions that result from it, and corresponding Hungarian know-how.
