Dear Prospective Students,
       Join the METU team!
    the rector welcomes you
                                                              I welcome you on behalf of the community of Budapest
                                                              Metropolitan University (METU). You are about to make a
                                                              very important decision in your life. Your higher education
                                                              institution will greatly influence your further career, social
                                                              and professional relationships. We know this, that is
                                                              why we created an education method, where studying is
                                                              enjoyable and you can leave the university well-prepared
                                                              for the job market. Let me explain you why education at
                                                              METU is so unique.

                                                             Modern, successful universities have already discovered
                              that in the fast-changing job market the most important thing is to prepare students for
                              any challenges with a portfolio-based education method. In Hungary we were the first
                              ones to introduce our unique myBrand method, which helps our students be successful
                              on the job market.

                              What are the advantages of the myBRAND education method?
                              Studying is fun: instead of frontal education, you will participate in a lot of teamwork
                              and projects, you will learn the most up-to-day digital and presentation skills in a
                              modern environment.
                              Practice in real life: you will learn the theoretical knowledge and will be able to apply
                              that straight in real-life examples.
                              You can start your career as a fresh graduate with experience: you will have
                              a portfolio prepared by the end of your studies, introducing all your projects and
                              professional skills. This portfolio will be an invaluable help on your first job interviews.

                              Why is METU a great choice?
                              You can gain relevant professional experience at one of our 2500 corporate partners.
