University lecturers from Exeter and Graz are among foreign guests invited to Corvinus University of Budapest’s round table discussions in honor of the launch of their new Philosophy, Politics, Economy (PPE) bachelor’s program and the Political Economy master’s program.
“Our two-day event is the celebration of the start of our PPE bachelor’s course, as we consider it a great success that this course can start in the fall after such hard work. As many students applied for PPE, it confirmed for us that it was worthwhile to offer this course, which is only available at Corvinus [in Hungary],” shares Éva Ványi, associate professor at Corvinus University of Budapest.
"We would like our students to feel that they have come to the right place, and that they can get a professional and playful taste of the possibilities within the PPE program, even before their studies begin,” she continues.
On the first day of the event, round table discussions are held for the fields of study related to the newly launched university course, while the second day focuses on students who take part in political and economics-based experiments, dealing with questions in a playful way.
Throughout the two days, students can experience the professional content of their courses, in both the bachelor’s PPE course and the Political Economy master's program.
According to a statement from Corvinus, the university will “celebrate the launch of its PPE program by inviting foreign lecturers from renowned universities” to programs being held on September 5 and 6, including a round-table debate.
Foreign guests invited to Tuesday's public debates include Christoph Alexander Kuzmics from the University of Graz and Julian C. Jamison from Exeter University, both of whom teach in PPE programs at their respective universities.
The topic of panel discussions covers specific rules from a political-economic point of view, as well as happiness and the connections between society and the economy.
