Hungary View Map


At Corvinus University of Budapest the Faculty of Business Administrations with its 230 academic employees and more than 5000 students is the number one in Hungary in the field of scientific research on business, and business education. As a flagship department of the Faculty, Corvinus School of Management (CSM) is one of the top institutions offering MBA, Executive MBA, in-house and international programs in Central and Eastern Europe. Its advisory committee, the Curatorium, consists of three dozen business leaders from cutting-edge Hungarian and multinational corporations, chaired by the British Ambassador in Budapest. Commitment to quality of education is reflected by CSM’s internationally recognized board, its strong relationship with practicing managers, and an Alumni network of successful MBA graduates. CSM’s international reputation is highlighted by educating MBA groups of leading Western European business schools. CSM enjoys the access to the superior 21st century MBA classrooms equipped with high-level facilities in the historical building of Corvinus University, located right in the city center of Budapest, on the bank of Europe’s longest river, Danube. The flagship program of Corvinus School of Management, the Executive MBA (EMBA), is a part-time program designed for students with substantial work experience. Classes are scheduled for every second weekend: Friday afternoons and Saturdays plus an intensive week per semester, plus two optional week at a partner university abroad. That allows our students to continue their work and immediately apply to their job what they learn on the Corvinus MBA. Special emphasis is placed on skills, personal mentoring and networking in this program. For students with at least 2 years of work experience who decide to devote all their time and efforts to learning we recommend the Full-time MBA program. This program demands substantial work from students during and outside classes (double the hours compared to the EMBA). The curriculum covers knowledge of management tools and their application in order to prepare our students for future career positions. Interactive class participation during the weekdays leads to the development of groups with close social relationships. As it is an accredited Bologna Master Program, students will be prepared for later PhD studies. Both the two types of the Corvinus MBA programs utilize an integrated curriculum that reflects the latest business challenges in the field of leadership, performance management, marketing, IT, corporate sustainability, and strategy. Small classroom size and carefully selected student body enable a proactive teaching methodology with case studies, class discussions, and teamwork with learning from peers. Beyond the US-style MBA curriculum, CSM put special emphasis on the Central European business environment and practice.
