CEU Business School will not offer the Katalyst Executive MBA programs in 2017

Tuition for Executive MBA students is EUR 16,000 for the 22-month-long program. This is a reduced rate made possible by a generous gift from our founder, George Soros, that widens access to the degree.

As a committed institutional citizen in Hungary, CEU Business School is pleased to announce a third round of special scholarships for members of the Hungarian government institutions (please read the details in Hungarian). We offer this financial assistance in order to help contribute to the highest, most effective and most innovative levels of governance in the country. Only members of the Hungarian civil service, public servants and employees of 100% State- or local government owned companies are eligible as it is specified in the detailed description. The value of the scholarship is EUR 8,000, covering 50% of the EMBA tuition.

Those who are eligible for the 50% government scholarship, are not eligible for any other tuition fee reduction opportunities (e.g. early application tuition reduction, or corporate tuition fee reductions). Candidates who are eligible for this scholarship, should indicate it in their Statement of Purpose.

CEU has long possessed a commitment to support the professional development of Open Society Foundation Colleagues. Reflecting this university-wide policy, CEU Business School is pleased to announce that Open Society Foundations' Colleagues* are eligible for a 50% scholarship for our Katalyst Executive MBA program. This special scholarship represents a savings of EUR 8,000. Those who are eligible for the 50% OSF scholarship, are not eligible for any other tuition fee reduction opportunities (e.g. early application tuition reduction, or corporate tuition fee reductions). Candidates who are eligible for this scholarship, should indicate it in their Statement of Purpose.

* Persons who are in employment relationship with the offices and foundations listed at https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/about/offices-foundations webpage, or with AdminGroup Zrt. are eligible for the scholarship.

  • "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."
