REPORT ON THE PROGRESS OF STUDIES AT THE JANOS KODOLANY UNIVERSITY, BUDAPEST, HUNGARY UNDER THE PROGRAM OF ACADEMIC MOBILITY
I, Kravtsova Arina, a 3rd year student of the Karaganda Economic University of Kazpotrebsoyuz, specializing in World Economy, returned from the Janos Kodolany University (Hungary), where I studied for one semester under the academic mobility program from February 20, 2020 to May 25, 2020. In accordance with the educational agreement, 30 credits are credited to my transcript; the number of subjects passed is 6:
International Business Law and Regulation

Green Economy 3 - Sustainable Business Model Innovation
University named after Janos Kodolany is the largest private university in Hungary. The relationship with the teachers and staff of the university developed very well, they supported us in everything, willingly went to meet us. At the end of March, we switched to distance education due to the pandemic, the organization and process of distance learning was at a high level. We also worked in teams, created our own projects and protected them. I am very grateful to the Hungarian University for excellent teaching, help in any questions and attitude. Our group consisted exclusively of foreign (for Hungary) students from Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, many countries of the European Union and even Mexico, Japan and Brazil. All the guys were determined not only to study together and help each other in their studies, but also to communicate outside the classrooms, to learn about the culture of other countries. It was also a valuable experience for me. The most vivid impression was left by the teacher of disciplines: Environmental and Alternative Economics, Sustainable Business Model Innovation- Dr. Horváth Bálint, who turned out to be an incredible person with a lot of experience and professional knowledge. Giving us various creative assignments and raising current, today, questions and problems in lectures, he increased our interest in his subjects and topical global issues and their solution.
Having successfully passed the session, I received high scores, confirming my professional knowledge. Of course, at first there were difficulties, but then I got used to the educational system at the university. It is very interesting to get to know another culture and traditions get experience in education abroad and meet different people from different countries. Therefore, I recommend to all students: do not miss the opportunities for development and personal growth.
I would like to sincerely express my gratitude to our university and rector, Yerkar Balkaraevich Aimagambetov, for the opportunity given to study at one of the best foreign universities, as well as to our International Center, which helped with all the documentation and emerging issues.
