Shared Service Centres (SSCs) represent one of Hungary’s fastest-growing sectors and offer a variety of positions in a number of major Hungarian cities – including Szeged – for young graduates, with or without experience, who speak foreign languages.

Every year, thousands of new positions open in the SSC sector for professionals with a degree in economics and a good command of foreign languages. Many SZTE graduates – especially those from the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the Faculty of Arts – choose shared services centres as a first workplace.

This is why the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration has fully supported the SSC Basics course launched jointly with BDO - the fifth largest international network of public accounting, tax and advisory firms with representation in 154 countries. Since 2016, The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Szeged (SZTE) has been jointly training professionals, with BDO and throughout this programme, leading professionals share their experience, insight and knowledge in topics that are not covered in higher education in Hungary.

This unique course aims to better prepare students for future SSC positions by offering sector-specific information in topics, like the processes or the multicultural environment of service centres. “The professional contribution of the cooperating partner, BDO, makes this course especially valuable” says Dr. Márton Vilmányi, dean of SZTE’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. “BDO is an outstanding educational institute for the domestic SSC sector with exceptional knowledge of this field.

SZTE Experience

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
