Metropolitan University appoints new CEO


Budapest Metropolitan University (METU), an accredited private institute of higher education, has announced the appointment of 脕gnes T贸th as its new CEO, effective from February, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

T贸th, who has been working at METU for a decade, is tasked with enhancing the reputation of the university in the CEE region. The long-term strategy of the institution involves increasing the number of international students, which reached 800 last year. She took over the position from Johan Str枚ms盲ter at the beginning of February, the press release notes.

The new CEO is aware of METU始s operations, as she has worked as deputy client relations head, head of marketing, and strategic advisor in the past. METU says T贸th is personally responsible for several decisions that resulted in a 30% increase in student satisfaction.

Apart from the aforementioned strategy, T贸th will also focus on education strategies reacting to fast-changing job market conditions. The MyBrand education system, which is unique in Hungary, will play a major role in achieving METU始s goals, the institution says. MyBrand始s goal is organizing students始 achieved competences into a portfolio, which gives a realistic picture about the abilities mastered by the student, making them stand out in the job market.

"I始m striving to make people look at Budapest Metropolitan University as one of the most innovative higher education facilities, with one of the most progressive approaches not only in Hungary but in the region as well," says T贸th. "I believe that METU has the needed capabilities to achieve this."
