The SCRIBE21 cluster aims at creating new partnerships between European (French, Hungarian, Italian) and Australian universities.

Julian Roper – “An adventure designed to explore the affinity between knowledge, understanding and community.


What is SCRIBE21?

The Institute of World Economy of the Corvinus University of Budapest has successfully participated in the European Commission’s EACEA 44/2012 call and won the project entitled: Creating Sustainable Innovative Competitive Advantages in International Business for EU-Australasia in the 21st century.

What is its structure?

Students complete their first year in their university of origin and their second year abroad, in Australia for the Europeans and vice-versa. European and Australian students respectively benefit from a specialisation in management and business from an Australasian and European perspective.

All students selected as part of the consortium are awarded a master’s degree by their university of origin and the partner university at the end of their course. The programme began in January 2014 and will ultimately be open to up to 80 students from the five universities.

Master students can be trained in major international management issues as part of an integrated and mobile multidisciplinary course between the partner universities. They acquire, via specialisations, knowledge of international management rooted in diversified cultural and economic contexts. They get theoretical and practical training in intercultural management and complete a work placement of at least three months in Europe or Australia. By the end of their studies, students write their own thesis work.

Emphasis is placed on several economic sectors, with a specialisation relating to the strengths of each region where partner universities are located (wine, food, hospitality, business, economics, mining resources). The programme also focuses on entrepreneurship, diversity, and ethics within an international context and to integrate sustainable development issues.

To avoid additional costs for the students, enrollment fees will be payable to their university of origin only.

This new Double Degree Programme between European and Australian higher education institutions provides an excellent opportunity both for students and members of the academia to exchange knowledge and build linkages between the two continents. Furthermore, not only would students gain advanced knowledge in sustainable business practices, but by studying on different continents they would gain firsthand experience on how business is being conducted in different parts of the world.
