Editor: Ildikó Hrubos

November, 2011

The volume deals with two themes of the research study series conducted in the framework of the TÁMOP 4.2.1 project of the Corvinus University of Budapest. The first four papers present the partial results of the theme ‘Higher Education institutions according to their undertaken missions and their actual activities’. The backbone of this is the research, which makes an attempt at adapting the European U-MAP project to Hungary. An emphasized attention is paid to the subject of the so-called third mission, its appearance in the official documents of institutions and their actual activities. The fifth and sixth studies provide a theoretical-conceptual framework for international research studies regarding international market orientation, and it formulates hypotheses. The seventh study examines the transformation of the governance, management systems of higher education institutions in the process of their adaptation to the changing social-economic environment.
