About last year in a nutshell

Our programmes this year

Our history

How it has all come together

  • September 2011

    The beginning of a tradition

    A group of young students dreamt about creating a professional summer program for students interested in the important issues of our world. They couldn't imagine the effect of this idea then.

  • August 2012

    I. MCC-MET Summer Academy

    Their hard work resulted in a unforgettable memory for the participants, and the organizers as well. Everyone could learn from the lessons about sustainable development, whilst being amongst people, whom we now call friends.

  • August 2013

    Bigger, better

    With the partnership with Citibank, MCC-Citibank Summer Academy could grow both as a matter of size, and quality.
    We were also delighted to call Prof. David Venter, former advisor of Nelson Mandela, our patron.

  • August 2014

    When we simply call all of this: tradition

    This year's Summer Academy, in cooperation with FAO, focused on food economics, with lecturers like Vladimir Rakhmanin, Assistant Director-General at FAO, former advisor of Vladimir Putin. We discovered the country, gained insight into the interesting topic of food-economics, and made hopefully long-lasting friendships.

  • August 2015

    Our best Summer Academy yet

    With the cooperation of Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency, HIPA we organised our fourth Summer Academy with the main topic of industrial strategies. Participants learnt about innovative solutions in corporate governance, automotive industry and cultural management and left with hundreds of long-lasting, joyful memories and valuable experiences.

  • August 2016

    Business Beyond Borders.

    During last year's Summer Academy, our participants gained insight to International business and Cross-cultural management through the lectures of professors Vladimir Putik and Mr Stephen Perkins. They also had a chance to enjoy the spa of Kehida, the winery of Szigliget, the fireworks on the 20th of August and the lively life of Budapest.
