CEU is pleased to announce the launch of the new Department of Economics and Business on August 1, 2017. The new department will combine the strengths of the Department of Economics and CEU Business School. The new department will offer innovative, mission-relevant, and research-led economics, business, finance, and management education. Our goal is to provide capable professionals, especially from the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region, with technical skills and strategic insight.

The Department will pursue research in these fields, publishing in leading journals, attracting research funding and engaging in interdisciplinary projects. The Department will aim to further improve its standing in international rankings. These goals are served by research-intensive Master’s and PhD programs as well as fee-paying professional and certificate programs.

The following degree programs will continue in the new department: PhD in Economics, PhD in Business Administration, MA in Economics, MA in Economics Policy and Global Markets, MSc in Finance, MA in Global Economic Relations, MSc in Business Analytics, and MSc in Technology Management and Innovation. The following degree programs will be discontinued after the graduation of the current cohort of students: Accelerated One-Year MBA, Katalyst Executive MBA.

The new Department also aims to develop additional innovative and research-intensive degree and certificate programs.

“ Change is continuous and unavoidable. However, you have a choice when it comes to your response to change. The ability to anticipate and lead change is the opportunity that we are challenging you to embrace. With your fellow executives, you will be building an invaluable life-long professional network that will place you among the future business leaders in Central and Eastern Europe and beyond.”

  • "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."
