Dr Szabolcs Nagy, the vice-dean for International Affairs of the Faculty of Economics, attended the "CHINA EDUCATION EXPO SHANGHAI 2018" on 25-30 October 2018. Representing the University of Miskolc, he took part in the professional program strengthening the cooperation between Chinese and Hungarian higher education institutions.

In addition to promoting Hungarian higher education and the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme, Dr Nagy had the opportunity to introduce the English-taught programmes of the University of Miskolc and to recruit potential students at the student fair in the Shanghai Expo Centre.

On the second day of the programme organised by Tempus Public Foundation, Dr Nagy visited the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics as a member of a delegation of 12 Hungarian higher education institutions and then the delegation travelled to the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology. The next day the delegation paid visits to Shanghai University and Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

At each of the universities a brief presentation of higher education and universities in Hungary was given, which included the profile of the University of Hungary. Possibilities for future cooperation were discussed, including student and teacher exchange as well as establishing joint research projects and even joint degree programmes.

During his visit Dr Nagy visited several laboratories (stock market, company management simulation room, assembly plants) that could serve as models for further raising the level of and increasing the practical aspects of degree programmes at ME.

Overall, the universities visited in Shanghai, which are putting great efforts into internationalisation, are open to cooperation in almost every field; in this, the presence of the Confucius Institute at ME is a great advantage to the university.
