Our goal is simple: transform your professional future by taking you from operational and functional expertise to positions of strategic leadership within your organization.

Our innovative program structure allows you to earn our US-accredited Executive MBA degree gradually over 28 months, with the first of our ten 4-to-9 days residencies starting in April 2021. In 2021, 2022 and 2023, most of our modules will be centered around popular European “long weekends,” where business is slower. READ MORE >>



During your CEU Executive MBA, you will exchange ideas with an unparalleled faculty comprised of some of the most accomplished management scholars in Europe. CEU Executive MBA instructors represent 20 nationalities and graduated from world’s top universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT and Insead. They combine their academic achievements with deep experience working with companies and organizations throughout the world. READ MORE >>



CEU Executive MBA allows you to combine the network and energy of Vienna during our spring, fall, and winter modules with the relaxed affordability of Budapest during the summer. In both places, you’ll experience state-of-the-art facilities, which are the backdrop to what is really important. Our unique campuses are defined by the principle of the Open Society and provide a meeting space for a vibrant community of graduate students from nearly 120 countries. READ MORE >>



Joining CEU Executive MBA means becoming member of the tightknit community of more than 16,500 professionals active in 136 countries. Our alumni are leaders in business, politics, civil society, academia and culture. Our commitment to lifelong learning, to innovative ideas and to challenging hierarchies and “conventional wisdoms” links people who share not only a degree, but also values and experiences. READ MORE >>



Our 2020 tuition of 25.000 euro for our US-accredited program represents one of the best price-to-value ratios in Europe. We also offer a variety of merit-based scholarships with diverse backgrounds and exceptional leadership potential. Our beneficial arrangements with Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa Group and accommodation partners in Vienna and Budapest further facilitate program participation, especially in terms of the opportunity cost of your time.

We are facing a paradox. As our governments become increasingly closed-minded, businesses are pressured to open up to new network strategies, more demanding creative talent and faster ways of learning and adapting. Navigating this complex web of technological, organizational, generational and political tensions will define business leadership for decades to come. The CEU Executive MBA will help you learn how to become just that kind of a leader.  READ MORE >>
