The daily Magyar Nemzet said that Karácsony, who co-heads the Párbeszéd party, did not dispute working at Corvinus in the absence of the necessary qualifications, but he blamed the university for the oversight.
At a forum in Szentendre on Tuesday, Karácsony told journalists that he had only earned 100,000 forints (EUR 285) a month at the university, the same as a teaching assistant.
The newspaper added, however, that after 2008, Karácsony had been employed as an assistant professor for four years and had certainly enjoyed a higher salary while not meeting the appointment criteria for the post.
The Education Office recently concluded an investigation which found that Corvinus had employed Karácsony illegally.
