It was one of the best things that has ever happened to me - both in educational and in social aspect. The lectures given by professionals were top quality and the tasks for participants were challanging and interesting. Meeting people from all over the world of wide range of age and profession was awesome, and the organising students arranged us really fun programme for the free time.

More details about the programme

International Strategic Management

Would you like to learn about international corporations? Widen your knowledge on the world of transnational and multinational companies with our lectures! MCC-MET Summer Academy 2016 provides the opportunity to gain insight into the emergence and rise of the world’s biggest market leading firms as well as the management and dynamics of mergers and acquisitions. You will learn about what aspects you should take into consideration when making financial and investment decisions of international companies. You will have also be able to test your knowledge by solving a case study prepared by our lecturers.

Business in International Relations

We intend to explore the relationship between international politics and business with you. Though often overlooked, international political environment shapes markets and corporates in many meaningful ways. Governments and their interactions impact businesses today more and more as sanctions and embargoes are introduced and lifted, diplomatic and political quarrels and alliances change the strategic environment in which firms operate.

But on the other hand, the ever-expanding international business relations transform global politics, too. Transnational and multinational companies are becoming more and more important international political actors on their own. Therefore understanding the relationship between public and private sector, the role of advocacy, lobbying and negotiation is key to make well-informed international business decisions.

International Marketing

How do international companies stay on their feet in the world-wide competitive environment? You can learn about different solutions to this problem by attending our lectures on international marketing and branding. By visiting Zwack Unicum Plc. and Kehida Thermal Spa and Waterpark you can learn from professionals first-hand how they made the name of their company well-known all over the world. Furthermore, there will be a TED Talks inspired section where you can hear innovative speeches about these topics as well as marketing psychology. You will also have the opportunity to gain knowledge on cross-cultural management – a skill crucial for international companies.

So if you feel a keen thirst of knowledge about a topic, you've come to the right place.

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.
