National University of Public Service
The National University of Public Service (NUPS; Hungarian: Nemzeti Közszolgálati Egyetem) is higher educational institution in Budapest, Hungary. Established in 2012, it is one of the youngest universities in Central and Eastern Europe, however, its faculties as former independent colleges look back much earlier.
The university was officially founded on 1 January 2012 through the merger of the Zrínyi Miklós National Defence University (becoming the Faculty of Military Sciences and Officer Training), the Police College (becoming the Faculty of Law Enforcement) and the Faculty of Public Administration of Corvinus University of Budapest (becoming the Faculty of Public Administration at NUPS). In addition to these faculties, NUPS includes institutions that function as educational organs and think tanks and is initiating its fourth faculty of European and international studies. The university’s primary goal is to educate future public administration officials, military and law enforcement officers and to develop the skills and know-how of current members of public service.
