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.

My first impression about Szeged was, that it is „a standard lovely Western city. You can see colourful buildings everywhere; enjoy the sunshine, walk in the nature, study in the bright, high-tech library”. I think this is a perfect place for students where they can experience sparkling culture diversity, enjoy the peacefulness of everyday life, meet a lot of kind and motivating people, enjoy the inspiring academic atmosphere, taste the food not only from Hungary but also from the world. I can call Szeged my second home.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
