Abstract: The development in recent years of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools and equipment is notable. The question arises whether user behaviour follows technical progress. Statistics prove that the spread of the Internet in Hungary, especially the Mobile Internet, follows the EU trend. At the same time, the changes in equipment use are less spectacular. The paper analyses the data of a survey conducted among the business students of the University of Miskolc in 2012 and in 2015 related to the order of preference for some ICT tools. Empirical results confirm that changes in the utilisation of ICT tools are much slower than the appearance of new tools and solutions in the market; due to the increasing popularity of smartphones, the possibility of utilising them both in higher education and at work should be considered.
