Incoming Erasmus mobility

Timetable for the Spring Term 2019/2020 is available (use filter function to select English courses)

The ELTE Institute of Business Economics welcomes foreign students from over 30 Universities in the academic year 2019/20. Our training is composed of overlapping modular courses, classes are all from Monday to Thursday 8.00-18.00. Lectures are on the first days of the week, and seminars are midday mostly. 

From the first year (2018/19) we run bilingual degree programs (English/Hungarian lectures and seminars for each course), and two of our degree programs are available as English-only BA degrees for international students (Finance and Accounting and  International Business Economics Bachelors). 

As we are a new Institute, the whole spectrum of ELTE IBE courses will only run from 2020/21. Erasmus students may take up other courses at other ELTE Faculties, for example at the Faculty of Social Sciences, or the Faculty of Law

The English courses offered are available for all Erasmus exchange students at ELTE,  but please check the notes on “Level”, as some of our courses do not require specialist expertise (and can be studied by students visiting other ELTE Faculties), while others require previous training. The codes used in the table:

ECTS: number of credits for a course that combines lectures and seminars.

HR/W: Weekly workload per semester (hour/week). Please note that all of our courses are lectures and seminars together, and are modular (6 ECTS courses take a longer period in the semester, and 3 ECTS credit courses only a few weeks).

1st and 2nd - suitable for Bachelors (1st cycle) and/or Masters (2nd cycle) students

Level:
Intro: The course is suitable for all students
Adv.: The course requires advanced expertise, suitable for advanced students in Business Economics.

Optimize your workload to fit your learning strategies

To obtain credit and manage the workload of a semester, plan ahead your semester, knowing that 

  • There is no compulsory attendance for the lectures, the seminars, or the mid-terms (except in case of first semester courses, please always check the exact requirements of the course), BUT
  • There is a prerequisite for the examination: a minimum requirement is set for the activities in the teaching period: a minimum of 30 points from mid-term tests and assignments must be earned. (None of these can be retaken for any reason.) For some courses the requirements  might be slightly different, please check the course description in Neptun.

To obtain grades (given you pass the minimum requirement, see point above) ELTE IBE offers two ways:

  • You can choose to write tests during the teaching period, and get a grade before the exam period (a so-called preliminary grade):
    • Preliminary grades offered are: 2 (pass, 60-62 points) 3 (satisfactory, 63-75 points); 4 (good, 76-87 points); 5 (excellent, 88 points or above).
    • preliminary grades will be in the Neptun study-platform, and you can decide whether you accept them or not. If you want to accept a preliminary grade, you have to do so before the exam period.
    • If you register for an exam date in Neptun you are not able to accept the offered grade any more.
    • If you reject a preliminary grade, you must register for and take an exam to obtain a grade.
    • If you do nothing, your grade will be automatically rejected, and you have to take an exam.
  • You can decide not to obtain a grade during the teaching period (and/or reject the one you earned) but take an exam in the exam period provided that you have become eligible (see above):
    • Usually 3 to 4 exam occasions will be provided during the exam period. You can and have to choose and register in advance.
    • Grades offered are: 1 (fail, 0-50 points); 2 (pass, 51-62 points); 3 (satisfactory, 63-75 points); 4 (good, 76-87 points); 5 (excellent, 88-100 points).

Tests, assignments, and the point system in the teaching period.

  • “big” mid-terms
    • 2 occasions for 3-credit courses, 3 occasions for 6-credit courses
    • For any course maximum = 80 points altogether
  • “small” mid-terms
    • 2 occasions for 3-credit courses, 4 occasions for 6-credit courses
    • For any course maximum = 20 points
  • additional assignments (max. 10 points)
    • so-called “extra points” can be earn in addition to the 100 from mid-terms; maximum 10 extra points could be added to points obtained during the teaching period.
    • Depends on course (some have no assignments, some in-class, and some home assignments)

For all formats: there is no re-take, the schedule for all midterms and mini-tests are available here.
