Corvinus University of Budapest is the first in Hungary to launch economic complexity data science

This January, Corvinus University of Budapest is launching a new world class Laboratory on Data Science and Economic Complexity. The laboratory will strengthen the expertise of the university as it prepares to launch this September its new Data Science in Business undergraduate program, a unique offering in Central Europe.

The Center for Collective Learning at Corvinus University (CCL) will be led by renowned professor Cesar A. Hidalgo, who brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in the fields of economic complexity, networks, innovation, and data science. The CCL is supported by a European Research Area (ERA) Chair which is a 5-year award designed to promote institutional change. In this case, they provide an opportunity for Corvinus to increase its research output in pursuit of its goal of becoming a leading business and economics university in Europe. 

Today’s business decisions are increasingly based on the analysis of vast quantities of data. This demands a unique combination of IT, statistical, and business skills. The laboratory launch will strengthen the focus of the University on this rapidly evolving area in the offing of the new, Data Science in Business undergraduate program this Autumn.” – says Előd Takáts, rector of the Corvinus University of Budapest.
