Institute of Statistics and Methodology

The Institute is primarily involved in teaching and application of mathematical, statistical and econometrical methods. Because of the diversification, cooperation partners are professional organizations, local governments, and companies, with whom the Institute actively collaborates in several research and development areas. 
The colleagues are prominent theoretical and practical experts in their own fields. Their outstanding teaching activities have been honoured at faculty and university levels as well. Based on this, several students have achieved outstanding scientific results at competitions, publications and excellence scholarships. At this time, there are several Hungarian and international PhD students carrying out research work at the Institute.
