Aquincum Campus

California’s Silicon Valley developed under the wing of Stanford University: high-tech industry took root alongside the campus and its research activities, so that industry could benefit from the university’s resources. The university provided not only outstanding human resources, but, through its research, acted as a path-finder for businesses, guiding them towards the newest trends in knowledge and technology.

At Graphisoft Park we believe that companies in daily contact with current market trends are in the best position to sense the major new directions of technological development, therefore, instead of guiding the industry, the educational institutions should be at its service by finding and nurturing the best talent and providing quality education to them to become the professionals who serve the industry’s needs of today and of tomorrow. In this spirit, at Graphisoft Park the educational campus was established alongside existing businesses.

The entire area of Graphisoft Park was earlier the site of the Óbuda Gas Works, and the campus area in particular was the site of the imposing management and social facilities of the factory built at the turn of the 19-20th century. The architecture of the remaining buildings evokes the historic era, when Hungary’s famed tradition of top-notch science education gave the world John Neumann, the founder of computer science, and a dozen Nobel Prize winners. These landmark buildings are the home to 2 educational institutions at this time.

Aquincum Institute of Technology (AIT-Budapest), founded in 2009 provides instruction not only on the latest research in information science, but also on the factors that make a software program usable and marketable.

The Institute tailors its course offerings to students from the leading universities of the United States, including the entire Ivy League arriving to AIT for a semester long study abroad program. These custom-designed courses also represent an exceptional opportunity for working professionals employed by the firms at Graphisoft Park.

International Business School (IBS), founded in 1991 is a regionally acknowledged, multiply accredited, multi-country provider of higher education services for a highly international and mobile student body, interested in the frontier areas of business and management. Its mission is to provide economically and culturally relevant, English-language business and management-related education.

EDUCATION at the service of high-tech industry

"The tenant firms at Graphisoft Park benefits directly from the knowledge of the highly-trained young graduates of the Institute. The Institute, in turn, benefits from joint research projects, student training programs, and daily interaction among professors, researchers and business leaders. These mutual benefits are the main engine behind innovation in the workplace."

Success stimulates successes

"It’ll be the 4th year of our moving to Graphisoft Park, into its beautifully reconstructed industrial landmark buildings, this coming summer of 2018. And this very 4-year-period has been the best in the 25 year history of IBS. This might be a coincidence although quality, I am sure, inspires quality and success stimulates success. IBS looks forward to thriving in this virtuous circle of Graphisoft Park for many more years to come."
