Please join us for this exciting alumni/student breakthrough gathering and reception. The focus is on how key aspects of modern management thinking and practices promote progress today.  

Our speakers are Gregor  Medinger, Paul Toldalagi, and Mel Horwitch. (Please see their brief bios below.) Gregor Medinger will address the importance of adhering to integrity and combatting corruption today. Paul Toldalagi will tell us what he has learned in successfully introducing  innovation and entrepreneurial ventures in hitherto relatively neglected regions, including the CEE and other fast-changing markets. Mel Horwitch will discuss how effective modern management provides hope and an essential basis for a vibrant economy and more civil society. Of course, much of this session will be a vigorous and wide-ranging dialogue among all present—just like a great business school class!

  • "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."
