"The MSc in Finance is guided by a strong industry coalition and is constantly evolving.
I have built
on a decade of experience at Cambridge and Oxford to design a program that
global employers
actually need both as a source of talent and a means of talent support."

  • "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."
