    About the Programmes

    Intensive English Language Programme (IELP)

    The Intensive English Language Programme (IELP) has been run successfully for several years now at International Business School. Its primary objective is to prepare students for continuing their studies in English at bachelor level. It is therefore first and foremost recommended to those who eventually wish to obtain a degree from International Business School / Oxford Brookes University. But it is also ideal for those who simply want to improve their English for reasons of their choice.

    The programme includes the teaching of 20 hours of English per week that is 600 hours per academic year. All our language teachers are highly qualified and have substantial experience in teaching. The programme also offers the unique opportunity of learning 4 hours of Business English per week in the higher level group (Intermediate and Upper-Intermediate). Students are grouped according to their present level of English, the levels ranging from Beginner to Upper-Intermediate / Advanced.

    BA in Business Studies (BABS)

    The BA in Business Studies programme aims to prepare you for a career in business and management or related areas. You will acquire thorough and up-to-date knowledge and understanding of business in relation to its environment and you will develop your personal skills while practising business techniques. You will embark on practical business tasks such as preparing business plans, undertaking negotiations, working with spreadsheets, devising strategies and tactics in competition with other teams, giving presentations, and analysing an organisation’s competitive position.

    BA in International Business Relations (BAIBR)

    This programme aims to produce professionals who speak several languages, and have a broad knowledge in the field of law, economics, international trade and business, communication and diplomacy. You will develop specialised knowledge in establishing and fostering international relations in business, culture and public service and skills in intercultural communication, undertaking negotiations, giving presentations, doing independent research.

    BA in Finance and Accounting (BAFIN)

    This programme is recommended for those who wish to work in the financial world, especially in the corporate or banking sector. Based on the common business knowledge acquired together with the students of the Business Studies programme, finance students get specialised basic and advanced courses on the topics of accounting, corporate finance, banking and investments. As a result, bachelors opting for this program will be able to execute, control and manage financial and accounting tasks. Besides theoretical concepts, you will gain practical insights and experience, which will help you in obtaining your first job.

    BA in Arts Management (BAAM)

    This unique programme aims to equip you with the practical and theoretical skills as well as the hands-on experience and sensitivity needed to work in the international arts industry. You will learn practical skills and put them into action, working alongside local arts organisations. You will also have the opportunity to develop, organise and manage your own projects, and so get your career off to a head start. As part of the programme all students undertake a placement with an arts organisation. This programme does not aim to educate artists. Rather, it will teach you to understand arts and artists, and the wider context in which they work so that you can successfully manage art-related organizations or launch your own business within the field of arts and culture.

    BA in Travel and Tourism Management (BATTM)

    Tourism is one of the world's largest and fastest growing industries, and a major provider of employment opportunities worldwide.

    Prof. István Tamás Ph.D. Founder and Chancellor

    The Chancellor

    Professor István Tamás is the Chancellor of International Business School. He is justifiably recognised as one of Hungary’s most successful businessmen, entrepreneurs and philanthropists. He studied electrical engineering at the Moscow University of Building and Construction, and then he attended the Budapest University of Economic Sciences and was awarded an MA degree in Economics. In 1997, he acquired a PhD from Newport University, USA. His dissertation “Capital Transformation and Privatization in Hungary” was published by Vantage Press Inc, New York. Having gained experience working for major corporate actors, he founded his own company that became one of the leading agents during the Hungarian transition and privatisation. He served as President & CEO of this company for a number of years. After his period of success in business life, he founded the college that would give Hungary’s young people the most up-to-date and practical business knowledge and skills: International Business School.

    School Facilities

    The crux of IBS philosophy is to foster both the intellectual and cultural development of its students as well as to create suitable conditions for their physical exercise and healthy nourishment as part of its lifestyle programme. Every evening the spotlights go on in the theatre hall of IBS Stage where outstanding artists and musicians entertain the audience. IBS Stage has become an acknowledged venue of Budapest cultural life in its past ten seasons. The IBS Student Stage helps students to test and develop their own creativity. The Friday evening concerts at IBS Stage have become an integral part of the thrilling jazz life of Budapest. The English style IBS Pub with its terrace in the garden is one of the most pleasant places to spend one’s spare time with friends. Situated in the heart of the IBS Campus, the IBS Garden Hotel, fully refurbished in 2004, offers comfortable accommodation in well-equipped en suite rooms to Hungarian and international students, visiting professors and conference attendants. Although only 20 minutes from the city centre, the nice rooms overlooking the garden offer guests peace and quiet. Adjoining the hotel, the newly opened restaurant joins in with its gastronomic delights and weekly dance evenings. The IBS Fitness with its proper equipment and professional management offers an opportunity for active recreation. Students can relax in the sauna after working out in the gym, or after playing football or tennis.

    There are several memorable events during the academic year that represent the highlights of student life at IBS. Before starting the academic year, students organise the Freshmen’s Camp. During the three days the freshmen have the opportunity to make friends with each other by participating in sports programmes, games, competitions, funny performances, and they will also get useful advice from teachers, lecturers and older students. Freshmen’s Ball is the most significant social event of the first year. Students open the evening with a festive waltz, then the dance continues until the early morning hours. Association with IBS does not finish with graduation. Alumni regularly come back to the school to attend among others the IBS Alumni Evenings.
