The change to a market economy in Eastern Europe has led to the need for management education. A British Diploma in Management Studies is being studied by students in Hungary. The Hungarian students are studying with distance learning materials produced by Buckinghamshire College of HE, and are supported by Hungarian tutors who conduct seminars in English. The students on the course tend to be better qualified academically than their UK counterparts. They are highly motivated and keen to study and obtain English qualifications. The students′ assignments are completed in English and the marks are moderated by staff at Buckinghamshire College. This method of developing management education could serve as a model for other East European countries.
