Speaking at the graduation ceremony of MCC’s postgraduate programs in Budapest on Saturday, Gergely Gulyás, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office said that today, MCC students can come from Cluj-Napoca, as well as Berehovo, Győr, Miskolc or Budapest. This shows that the talent management part of the Hungarian higher education system is able to bring all Hungarians together and make the best opportunities available to all Hungarians. In addition to the normal academic leg of higher education, it can also offer something extra that helps everyone to succeed in the long run, he added.
Gulyás said that already in 2001 the Venice Commission recognized the right of the mother country to contribute to the preservation of the cultural identity of a national minority effectively, and MCC does just this.
The Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) connects talented people who think in terms of the nation and community, regardless of party or political affiliation.
Zoltán Szalai, MCC’s director-general, said that Mathias Corvinus Collegium already has 24 training centers and more than 5,000 students in the Carpathian Basin. Of the 15 sites in Hungary, Győr, Pécs, Szeged, Debrecen and Miskolc have university programs, while 9 sites abroad run programs for secondary and primary school students. In addition to these, MCC centers are planned to open soon in the Highlands and southern regions.
