In the past year, 10% of the courses were conducted in English, while this year’s course catalogue contains twice as many English-language courses.

Of the English-language courses in this year’s- semester, the ones organised jointly by the London Stock Exchange Group Academy (LSEG Academy) and the BIB should be highlighted. A long-term partnership agreement between the two entities was signed by Gergely Fábián, Chief Executive Officer of BIB and Daniela Biagi, Head of LSEG Academy on Friday.
