Spend one or two semesters in beautiful Budapest, Hungary with math-minded undergraduates from across North America studying mathematics with leading Hungarian scholars.
“Hungary is a tiny country, and yet [it] sent to North America an amazing number of outstanding [people] in all intellectual fields, scientific, literary and artistic.” – Laura Fermi, Illustrious Immigrants
“Clearly, the Hungarian educational system has been the most successful for pure mathematics; it’s a model that ought to be studied very carefully because it works.” – Donald Knuth, Two Year College Mathematics Journal, Vol. 13
“Without a doubt, the most exciting part of my classes was the emphasis on creative problem solving.” – Julie Kerr, Alephnaught, Vol.35, No.1
