The Hungarian Economic Association (HEA) is the oldest and most significant association of Hungarian economists aimed at disseminating economic knowledge, developing the professional public sphere and representing the general interests of economists. For this reason various platforms including presentations, courses, professional discussions, meetings and itinerant conferences are organised regularly.
As a major professional and scientific organisation with a long tradition in Hungary, the HEA was established on 27 May 1894 by professors, academics, ministers, bankers, merchants, MPs, farmers, officials, landowners and noblemen in order to jointly seek the ways of national economic development.
The HEA, as a non-profit association, is a major platform of economic discussion beyond the narrow interpretation of science.
One click, and a professional community of more than 5 and a half thousand individuals. 80-100 large-scale conferences annually. 23 sections and 16 regional organisations. Keeping in touch with former school mates and colleagues. Purchase discounts available with a HEA Membership Card… We look forward to welcoming graduates, would-be economists and professionals interested in economic issues as members of the HEA!
The list of stores and service providers offering an average of 5-15% discount to holders of a HEA Membership Card with an EDC logo is expanding on a weekly basis. Currently there are approximately 1,100 stores and service providers accepting HEA Membership Cards across Hungary.
