MISSION AND GOALS

The mission of the Hungarian-Missouri Educational Partnership (HMEP) is to build cultural and business bridges between the United States and Hungary. This is achieved by providing young professionals with scholarships to study at U.S. universities. HMEP seeks candidates who want to fully understand the U.S. free enterprise system, international entrepreneurship and commerce to apply that knowledge to advance their career and support the economic development in Hungary and Central Europe. In support of its mission, HMEP also facilitates formalized connections with participating universities in Missouri and Hungary.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Funded by private and corporate donations, HMEP scholarships are awarded to outstanding candidates to pursue MBA or related masters programs at our partner Missouri university business schools. The scholarship award pays tuition, room and board, books and all fees. The program also attempts to find internships for the student scholars to gain practical experience in individual fields of study, and facilitates post-graduate employment opportunities. Applicants should have completed at least an undergraduate degree, preferably in economics, business, engineering or related fields, have one to two years of work experience, and must meet the admission requirements of the university to which they are applying.
Paris

HISTORY

The HMEP was founded in 2005 with the support of the American Ambassador to Hungary George H. Walker, Hungarian Ambassador to the U.S., Andras Simonyi, the Honorary Consul General of Hungary, Joe Adorjan, and four participating Missouri universities. To date, 28 students have successfully enrolled or completed the life-changing program and have resumed their careers. Partnerships have been established between four Missouri universities and six Central European universities.

INTERNSHIPS

The HMEP works to create internships providing the opportunity for a student to transfer knowledge learned in the classroom to a professional setting under the mentorship of professionals. Each internship is tailored to meet the experience and professional goals of the student and compliment the needs of the sponsoring organization. Student interns gain practical experience in their field of study, acquire marketable skills and begin to establish professional networks as well as creating employment opportunities with multi-national corporations.

The class was 12 days long ­­ the 2016 class met in Hong Kong December 28 thru January 8, leaving two weeks before the new semester began (you will see why this is important.) ...
