When the Alumni Network Hungary was launched back in 2018, the primary mission was to establish a global alumni community of former and current students at various Hungarian higher education institutions. After two years of extensive recruitment, we are proud to have reached almost 4000 registered members.
But who are the members of the Alumni Network Hungary exactly? Let’s take a closer look!
They are a member of a community spread across the globe from more than a hundred countries: many of them are from Pakistan, Jordan, India, Syria or Mongolia but they also have members even from Sri Lanka, Gabon and Venezuela. A majority of the alumni community has had their studies at the universities of Debrecen and Pécs, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the Corvinus University of Budapest and the Eötvös Lóránd University. Most of them obtained an MSc degree but they have hundreds of Bsc and even PhD graduates as well. The most sought-after majors are computer sciences, international relations, engineering and medicine. The vast majority of the community pursued their studies with the support of the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme but many of the members were self-financed or participated in an Erasmus mobility.
After graduation, the members have establshed their career in a wide variety of sectors. Natural sciences, engineering and IT are to most popular choices but education and research follow closely while banking, trade, economics and medicine are also highly prevalent.
As you can see, the global community of the Alumni Network Hungary covers a multitude of nations, education backgrounds, interests and career choices. We feel that this diversity is one of the most relevant strengths of the Alumni Network Hungary.
