Management

The predecessor of Management major, called Typing and Shorthand Teacher major was established  at  Bessenyei György Teacher Training  College  in 1975, which was the predecessor nstitute of the College of Nyíregyháza. Over the years, the interest has increased in both full-time and correspondent courses as well. Until the introduction of the Bologna system in higher education, all vocational school and school-based specialized training teachers majoring in management from all over the country were trained here. They could pair their management major with the following majors: English, Communication, Hungarian, German, History, nformation technology and Library.
 
In the Bologna system of higher education, Management has become a specialization of the  Hungarian basic training within the Faculty of Arts.
According to the founding document, the aim of the Hungarian basic / management professional training, is to train professionals who are capable of independent work in the field of administration using their Hungarian knowledge of language, literature, and culture; their general, technical and foreign language communication skills, modern management-technology and management-organizational skills, their technical writing and editing skills. Another objective for graduates is to be prepared for organizing administrative work-flow for different organizations, manage and coordinate work activities, or be able to participate actively and creatively in the decision-making and transaction operations.
 
The knowledge of Management specialization covers the administrative work areas  within the Hungarian language and literature requirements, including professional and business communication, protocol and secretarial skills, advanced IT-based management organizational, technical, typing, stenography, correspondence, report-writing and editing skills. The content of the Management specialization is built around three modules which covers the written language, interpersonal  communication and office communication.
The  graduates  in Hungarian basic major/ management specialization have the opportunity to continue their studies in any Hungarian master-level training course  in Hungarian accredited by a higher education institution. According to plans, the second scheduled teacher training in management specialization can be a further option for our graduates. In addition, beyond the specialization, the management module - with the same content within the range of this knowledge areas - can be chosen by any student of BA training in Hungarian as a minor module, that is a second preparatory teacher training module, which is a prerequisite of the entry to the second teacher training finally ensuring a master teacher degree in Management.
 
Demand was raised for short time trainings in management courses. In 2000, permission was received to start the Head of Secretariat higher education specialization, the Economic Managers​​ in  Foreign Language in 2004, and the Foreign Language Communicator in 2010.
These advanced qualifying trainings start every year as a  full time course and correspondence course as well. The host majors of the advanced qualifications:
- Management specialization of Hungarian major (Head of Secretariat);

- English Studies, German Studies, Roman Studies / French, Slavic management specialization (foreign language economic managers, foreign language communicator);

- Communication and Media Studies basic training/ business communication specialization (language communicator).
The department is a nationally acknowledged scientific and technical centre of the administrative studies. This is embodied  by the publication of teaching material, studies, methodological materials that help students’ training, and by the professional and public activities in which the staff members  are engaged. We are constant participants of regional and national professional forums, where we can be connected to the professional bloodstream through lectures, consultations, and further trainings. Our research activities affect the administrative / office work in several areas, and competency requirements in the labour market. Our research results, publications are published primarily in journals.
The administrative studies area is of great importance for the College of Nyíregyháza, and it is also nationally significant and strongly  bound to the management profession. Teachers working  countrywide are linked in some way to our institution, because they could obtain their management degree only at the College of Nyíregyháza or in its predecessor institution. Those who earned their knowledge as teachers, or are working  in  other sectors of the economy (business, public administration) can also  join the advanced management trainings offered by our department.
Students and teachers are aware of the uniqueness of the training and they consider  their duty, even their mission, to represent well this area. As a result, several teachers represent the profession at national and international professional forums, and the students participate on different contests, achieving significant success. For over 30 years, the college can boast of several national and world champions in shorthand and typing.
 
There are many forms  dealing with talented students within higher education. It is commonly accepted that the talent development on academic levels is the most direct way of tutoring, and in this spirit, we create opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and to realize their potentials. The forms of talent development are the following:
- Talent development workshops,

- Participation in professional tournaments,

- Scientific student groups (TDK) operation,

- International student exchange program (especially Erasmus),

- Professional days, so called open days, lectures, presentations, involving the active co-operation of students,

- Common professional study tours, office visits,

- Opportunities to participate in group trainings.
 
Our course structure helps students to acquire new knowledge in a more practical form. We lay great emphasis  on the develop the students’ communication skills in group form and training form, develop their self-awareness, human knowledge, and personality.

Our students  spend 180 hours at practise places,  firms from the region including nearly 50 small and medium-sized enterprises and offices which signed a cooperation agreement with our institution (professional practice), where expectations of the labour market can be experienced directly, and they can participate in undertaking specific tasks in the administrative work area. This experience increases the students’ awareness regarding their own career and motivates and helps them to prepare for their future job.
