The Faculty of Economics at J. Selye University (hereinafter FE JSU) is the only faculty in Slovakia where members of the Hungarian ethnic minority can study and obtain a university degree in business and IT in their mother tongue.
The faculty offers education in four first-level study programmes from the academic year 2018-2019.
- In the framework of the Applied Informatics study programme we aim to qualify specialists who are able to meet the latest challenges in scientific, technical and economic development and are able to design, implement and transform digital IT systems.
- The Corporate Economics and Management study programme, available both for full-time and part-time (correspondence) students, is also aimed at the training of professionals who will be involved in the forming of economic thinking and will be able to make decisions on different management levels.
- The Commerce and Marketing study programme is implemented in cooperation with the Corvinus University of Budapest.
- The Rural Development study programme is also jointly implemented, namely in cooperation with Szent István University in Gödöllő, Hungary.
The joint courses are partly taught by the FE JSU staff, and also by visiting lecturers from the partner universities. The graduates receive diplomas from both institutions.
The faculty is currently offering two master's degree programmes. The Business Economics and Management programme is for those with a bachelor's degree in business. It prepares them to be able to manage processes in corporate and business as well as in a much wider environment. They learn to formulate solutions and make decisions. The Business Management study programme, currently attended by correspondence students and to be ended soon, is focused on managerial decision making in small and medium-sized enterprises.
The doctoral (PhD.) study programme in Business Economics and Management offered by the FE JSU focuses mainly on research and science. Thus, it aims to train experts in economic sciences from among the best-performing ethnic Hungarians in Slovakia.
The faculty is also in charge of running the pedagogical study programmes in mathematics and informatics as well as teaching these subjects at other faculties of the university.
Our study programmes offer training, which is practice-oriented but based on theoretical knowledge. They have been developed for future business or IT professionals who want to become corporate managers at home or abroad in an international environment. Our students achieve good results in academic student competitions and international case study competitions, and they also gain international experience in the framework of European scholarships and mobility programmes.
FE JSU is a dynamically developing institution with modern infrastructure, modern approach and a true commitment to science. Through the work of its lecturers, researcher and PhD students, it contributes to international scientific achievements, and the results of this scientific work are published in recognized journals and presented at international scientific events alike. The technical equipment of the Intelligent Robotics Centre with its supercomputer and the launching of the doctoral study programme also contribute to these results. The faculty maintains active scientific relations with its partner institutions and its goal is to implement national and international research projects. It also publishes two scientific journals, the Acta Oeconomica Universitatis Selye and the Selye e-studies. The faculty is also a regular organizer or co-organizer of scientific conferences, workshops and events.
