“Tell me and I forget; Teach me and I remember; Involve me and I learn”, says the common quote by Benjamin Franklin. The best method to learn is the interactive way, and to work on tasks with others. The cooperation between universities and professional organizations gives the opportunity for the students to do this. A five-year agreement on cooperation primarily in law enforcement and cybernetics has been signed in Budapest on Monday between the heads of the Public Service University in Budapest and Marymount University in Arlington, in the US state of Virginia.
Addressing the event, Hungarian Interior Minister Sándor Pintér pledged the ministry’s full support for the project and mentioned plans to broaden cooperation to include more universities across Europe. US Ambassador to Hungary Collen Bell said that the agreement signals further collaboration between the two universities and it would contribute to strengthening US-Hungarian relations.
The Marymount University noted the university has close to 4,000 students and many of the graduates work later with the FBI and the CIA, said the president Matthew D. Shank. To support the students is an investment into the future; as it is a general truth this is a really impressive investigation. Réka Szemerkényi, Hungary’s ambassador to the United States, also welcomed the agreement.
