CEU Business School was founded in Budapest in 1988 by a group of visionary leaders headed by legendary investor and philanthropist George Soros.
We are rapidly emerging under our new leadership. With assistance from an endowment 3x the per-student value of that possessed by Oxford and Cambridge, we offer educational program opportunities which are uniquely relevant for today's challenges, and which are offered at a highly subsidized tuition rate.
