Greetings from Bremen

– WrittGreetings from Bremenen by Dr. Szabolcs Szikszai, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer

In 2011, I was invited to lecture as an Erasmus professor in Hochschule Bremen by an earlier student/colleague of mine, Adél Németh and her local PhD consultant, Prof. Dr. Hans-Martin Niemeier, who gave three guest lectures on the International Week at the University of Pannonia back in September 2010. While I was in Bremen I gave three lectures on the macroeconomic situation and the current issues in Hungary which all met with overwhelming interest from faculty and students alike. Unsurprisingly, students in Germany are very much aware of the current state of economic and political affairs in Hungary and were more than happy to share their experiences with me. From them I learned that a new party called the Pirates (Piraten) is gaining more and more supporters in the German political arena at the expense of the Green party and is extremely popular with the youth although it lacks a clear economic policy strategy. (Shortly afterwards, I actually bumped into a demonstration against the hunger-promoting policies of Deutsche Bank attended by Piraten members, amongst others. By the way, the demostration, however politically delicate the issue, proceeded in a very peaceful and organized fashion.) I could also spend ample time getting to know faculty at both the Hochschule and the Jacobs University, the latter private school now being Adél’s host university for her remaining time as a PhD student in the aviation industry. I was especially happy to see an alumna of the University of Pannonia – and an ex-student of our doctoral school – have professional reputation in Germany: Adél is often interviewed and cited by leading German and other European newspapers and journals as an aviation expert!

For those who have yet to visit, the 400,000-strong Bremen is one of the three independent city states in Germany besides Berlin and Hamburg. Its people are extremely proud of their long history of democracy and self-governance dating back to the XII. century. In fact, one of the main sights, the statue of the vigilant Roland facing the monumental Cathedral St. Petri, is a stark reminder of the long and arduous struggle for civic independence from the Church. A stroll along the bank of river Weser also offers a whiff of freedom as well as nice and salty breezes of fresh air, excellent beer and an infinite variety of fish plates. The city is also a paradise for soccer fans, who have the chance to see Claudio Pizarro in the pitch every week. (On my first day, I actually drifted into an endless streak of fans flocking towards Weser stadium. I only missed the game because I had a shopping bag full of goodies in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, which I would have had a hard time explaining to the gatekeepers at the stadium.) And last but not least, Bremen is very close – thanks to Deutsche Bahn – to Bremerhaven (60km) and Hamburg (120km), both of which I was lucky enough to visit briefly over the course of my 10-day stay (see photo made on Aussichtsplattform SAIL City in Bremerhaven where you have a beautiful view over the horn of Weser and the harbor).

As the German saying suggests, „you never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Well, for me, Bremen does not need a second chance. I would encourage all students of business and economic studies to capitalize on the opportunity offered by our renewed BA-level Erasmus cooperation – which will hopefully be extended to the MA level after my discussion with the Dean of the Business School – and spend an academically and personally inspiring semester at the Hochschule Bremen.

A semester in Germany with Erasmus

a semester in germany with erasmusKrisztina Hornung’s Erasmus experiences

I spent the fall semester in Brühl, Germany. Brühl is a beautiful town situated between Köln and Bonn. The university of Brühl is one the best universities in Germany, known as the Europäische Fachhochschule, specialising in economics. There are three options for international students: you can learn European Business Management in English or German with a given schedule, or you can be a regular student when you choose your own subjects. I chose the English-taught European Business Management with eight subjects: International Marketing, Case Studies, European Financial Management, Business Strategies, Working in International Teams, Cross-Cultural Business Training and, of course, German as a foreign language. It is a special programme for international students. I met students from Spain, Scotland, Romania, Mexico, France and Russia. It was interesting to meet people from different countries and cultures. The education system of Germany differs from the Hungarian system: we learnt more practical things than theories. We worked in teams and wrote case studies using different theoretical approaches. For example, we tried to introduce Narva energy-saving light bulbs in four countries (one of them was Hungary) or develop a Spanish supermarket chain in Portugal.

The international office team helped us a lot. They organised two Welcome days when I met the other students and the teachers before the classes. Two field trips also contributed to this programme: one to the European Parliament (Brussels) and one to the European headquarters of the UPS (Köln). UPS is one of the biggest American logistical companies and we saw the planes and the separation of the packages.

We were a really good international team. We organised a round trip in Germany visiting Hannover, Erfurt, Frankfurt, Weimar and Berlin, of course. Some of the Spanish students spent four days in Poland. I visited Paris and Basel with a Romanian and a Spanish student. I spent a lot of time in Köln: I was in the tower of the Kölner Dom, in the Chocolate Museum and walked a lot on Schilder Gasse which is the biggest pedestrian street in Europe. The Erasmus Initiative team organised stamm-tisch programmes for us in Köln when we changed languages. So I learnt a little Spanish or Russian and they tried to learn a little Hungarian.

This semester was one of the best experiences of my life.

PhD in Economics in Bologna

phd_in_economics_in_bolognaThe Department of Economics at the University of Bologna (DSE) offers the new edition of its PhD Program. This program aims at training students for a career as economists in academic institutions or in research departments of corporations, public organizations, financial institutions and the government.

The program has a standard organization and is taught in English. In the first year students are asked to take six courses in quantitative methods, microeconomics and macroeconomics. By the end of the first year they will also have to choose a field of specialization and a research supervisor. In the second year, students will choose six more advanced courses consistent with their field of specialization. The rest of the program is devoted to work on the dissertation. To this aim students will be asked to present their papers in the monthly PhD informal meetings and in the more formal PhD forums.

The considerable diversification of research areas covered by the members of the DSE and their international reputation provide an outstanding environment where students of most fields in economics may find research ideas and tight guidance for their doctoral studies.

More information is available at > Admissions 2012.

Any further question may be addressed to

With LMEC, the PhD in Economics is part of the Graduate Program in Economics at the University of Bologna. LMEC is a two-year Master of Science. Courses cover core areas of theoretical and empirical economics with particular emphasis on a rigorous quantitative approach. For more information on LMEC, please visit
