Lead, Create and Grow Businesses Anywhere in the World

The pioneering spirit required of managers and entrepreneurs in today’s global, ever-changing, ever-challenging business climate is elemental to CEU Business School. Founded in 1988, just as the free market was taking root in transitioning countries of Central and Eastern Europe, CEU Business School was the first educational institution in the region to grant American MBA degrees.

Our accelerated, full-time, one-year MBA degree will immerse you in the challenging dynamics of running and creating an enterprise — in an emerging economy like the city we call home, Budapest, Hungary, in a global capital like New York City or London, or anywhere else in the world. It will ground you in fundamental business skills. And it will change the way you think.

You’ll engage in timely issues affecting global businesses of all sizes while you complete the demanding coursework of a traditional MBA program in one year. As a member of the Accelerated One-year MBA program you will:

  • Develop the entrepreneurial skills and perspectives to manage new and established ventures anywhere in the world
  • Learn how to create value in emerging economies
  • Harness experimentation and creativity to become more innovative
  • Cultivate professional values anchored by integrity, ethics and transparency
  • Study in a nurturing, inspiring environment
  • Earn an American MBA in Europe

A World of Diversity

To really understand how to do business in all corners of the world, you need to understand people from all corners of the world. Nearly every continent has been represented in our MBA program, and no single nationality has dominated our recent classes.

  • "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."
