CEU Business Business School MBA alumni were well represented on November 9 at a quite timely “Hard Talk” conference. Organized by the Hungarian Business Leaders Forum, this meeting focused on “The Day After the Presidential Election in the USA.” It featured a candid and engaging discussion with Colleen Bell, US Ambassador to Hungary. Borbála Czakó, HBLF President and graduate of the first CEUBS MBA class, expertly welcomed and moderated the entire session. There were over 110 invited attendees. They represented top business leaders, politicians and heads of leading Chambers of Commerce and NGOs, including the numerous CEUBS MBA alumni who attended.

During the accelerated, one year program it all became clear to me. I wanted to create my own business however I have realized I needed to develop both, professionally as well as personally. Both, the CEU BS and consulting experience gave me the chance to achieve my dream, having my own business consulting company in yet another field.

  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
