Edutus University (a higher education institution created by the merger of the College of Modern Business Sciences and the János Harsányi College) is a young, dynamically developing, environmentally conscious university. The main aim of Edutus University is to strengthen the character of a “knowledge center” by strengthening its relations with the public education and business spheres and building new ways of cooperation, so that its services can promote the competitiveness of the region.
The legal predecessor of Edutus University, the College of Modern Business, was founded in Tatabánya in 1992, basically specializing in business education as the first private college in Hungary. During its more than twenty years of existence, it has undergone a number of significant changes: the college, originally from Tatabánya, was expanded with a branch in Budapest and later across the border in Odorheiu Secuiesc. From 2017, the training started at the Sümeg Community Higher Education Training Center, and from 2018, the education started at the College's Civitas Sapiens Center in Tata. At the end of 2017, the College met the criteria for the “University of Applied Sciences” qualification, so from 2018 it will continue to operate as Edutus University.
In Tatabánya, technical training started in addition to business courses. The laser machine, which is also recognized at the European level, ensures international-class educational research and the marketable practical application of the technology. With the joining of János Harsányi College in 2011, our offer was supplemented with a well-recognized, market-leading tourism and hospitality training area in several respects. Through this, we became associate members of the number one world organization of tourism, the Madrid-based World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), as the only higher education institution in Hungary. Since then, UNWTO has selected Promotion University as its global Knowledge Network for tourism.
