One of the determining components of the social and economic well-being is the education. Those who have higher educational qualification are able to do a lot to improve development by their knowledge, broadminded mentality and language skills. Our research was carried out on the basis of data derived from graduate follow-up surveys of Budapest Business School that questioned students graduated in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. It was investigated where the graduated students work: whether they stay where they lived in their childhood or they work far from their birthplace – that is, the capital invested into education where returns. Correlations were looked for between the level of development of different areas of the country and the willingness of graduates to work there, and the migration balance of regions in connection to graduates.
