CEU Business School and the Embassy of Ireland, in association with the Irish Hungarian Business Circle and Enterprise Ireland warmly welcome guests to their first Business Forum titled: “Doing Business in Central Europe, Some Comparisons with Ireland”.

Irish Ambassador Kevin Dowling will deliver the welcoming remarks. MBA Programs Director Professor Zoltán Buzády will then deliver a short lecture on “Does Distance Still Matter? Doing Business in Ireland and the CEE Region.” The talk will compare a few national cultural elements from Ireland and how they are similar or different to those found in Hungary and the neighboring countries, with a focus on leadership.

Mr Nick Kós, Country Managing Partner at PwC Hungary will be the Key Note Speaker. He will present an Irish-Hungarian’s view on where CEOs see the global economy going, paying particular attention to the levels of optimism in Ireland and Hungary. Also discussed will be the megatrends facing business leaders, how Ireland and Hungary can attract Foreign Direct Investments, how they use their tax environment as an incentive, as well as prospects for their economies and a look toward the future.

This presentation will be followed by Péter Szilágyi, Professor of Finance at CEU Business School, who will discuss Ireland’s exemplary management of the financial crisis and the positive impact it had on corporate financing. The lecture will highlight the elements and the overall finance strategy of the Irish crisis management as compared to results in the poorly performing states such as Portugal or Spain.

Speakers:

  • Kevin Dowling, Irish Ambassador to Hungary
  • Zoltán Buzády, Assistant Professor, Director of MBA Programs at CEU Business School
  • Nick Kós, Country Managing Partnet at PwC Hungary
  • Péter Szilágyi, Professor of Finance at CEU Business School

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."
