Béla Kerékjártó (October 1, 1898, Budapest–June 26, 1946, Gyöngyös) was a Hungarian mathematician who wrote numerous articles on Topology.

Kerékjártó earned his Ph.D. degree from the University of Budapest. He taught at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Szeged from 1922, and at the University of Budapest from 1938. In 1923, he published one of the first books on Topology; Hermann Weyl wrote that this book completely changed his views of the subject.
