ESSCA Grande École de commerce à Budapest

With more than 2 million inhabitants and 10,000 companies, Hungary’s capital is influential throughout Central Europe, a region of significant economic growth. France is the third investor and its top corporations are active in Hungary.

As early as 1989, ESSCA anticipated the changes in Eastern Europe by creating a unique graduate degree in France, the Specialized Master programme in “East-West Exchange Management”. This degree was designed to provide a multicultural public with a global vision of the transformations underway in Central and Eastern Europe.
